On December 5, 1872, the American merchant ship, Mary Celeste was found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean. Floating serenely on the water, the vessel was completely abandoned - the sails were partly set and some were missing altogether, the hull was waterlogged but not excessively so and a lifeboat was missing. The last entry in the Captain's Log was ten days old.

What happened to the crew of the Mary Celeste?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
