Biosciences professor Kelly Weinersmith and cartoonist Zach Weinersmith explain a common observation – that most people who predict the future get it wrong – and challenge it cheerfully. Supported by gleeful illustrations, they discuss possible advances in 10 areas. They establish their geek cred with cartoons, references to science fiction and almost giddy asides on Canadian ballistic experts, scientific authorities named Elvis and gophers who thwart scientific experiments.
