In What's Next ?, 18 young scientists present the futuristic ideas they are pursuing that just might change the way we look at the world, even the way we live. The articles include: whether it is possible that humankind will become extinct in the near future (or evolve so far as to become unrecognisable); research into dark energy, the strangest substance in the universe; whether global warming will force us all to up sticks and move to the Arctic Circle; the possibility of us enhancing our minds and bodies, even to the extent of being able to remove unwanted memories; and the question: can we think without language? From climate change to cutting-edge physics, from hard-wired morality to modifying our brains or even our genome, WHAT'S NEXT? will give its readers a head start on comprehending what may well be in store for all of us in the next few decades.
