2057 - The Future Is Nearer than you think

Today on Far Future Horizons we present a documentary series hosted by theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku titled "2057".

2057 is a Discovery Channel television trilogy which premiered on the Discovery Channel on January 28, 2007 and attempts to predict what the world will be like in 50 years based on current trends. The show takes the form of a docu-drama with the three separate episodes, each having informative stories ingrained into the plot. 

2057 The Body: The first episode, "The Body", predicts medical advances from robotic surgery to flying ambulances.

2057 The City: examines the advances futuristic technology will bring to the home such as humanoid robots and holographic pets.

2057 The World: is probably the most complex episode of the three, discussing topics as varied as satellites that transmit data at extreme speed using lasers, to more political topics such as probable future geopolitical scenarios involving China and the United States as two opposing superpowers and the ramifications of a worldwide energy crisis with solar power positioned as a likely candidate to relieve the world's energy needs.

All three episodes of 2057 are available on DVD from Amazon Books.
