Controlling the Weather, Art by Robots?

The future hasn’t been written yet, but many Americans believe in the next 50 years, what was once science fiction will be reality — and they’re hopeful about it.

According to a new study released by the Pew Research Center and Smithsonian Magazine, 59 percent of those surveyed said future technological and scientific changes will make life better. More than 80 percent of U.S. adults believe human organs will be lab-grown and customized for patients by 2064. About 51 percent said computers will create art just as well as humans do.

One in three Americans believe advancements will be so significant in the next half century, we will have colonized other planets. But a majority believes we’re a ways from teleportation and controlling the weather.
