Ah, that fresh smell just after it rains. It brings a sense of calm to the world. But did you know that it could kill you? That's right, rain launches (mostly harmless) bacteria into the air and in rare cases it can spread disease. Scientists didn't fully understand how the process works until now.

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.
