Not sure about next, but in terms of greatest, creating a habitable atmosphere on mars and other planets will save humanity. We can do it. We have no shortage of brilliant people, only funding.

Why bother terraforming mars? It can't hold onto an atmosphere. Also it will be too hot for life when the sun expands: if you thought we could escape that by moving to mars.

It's close to earth. Might prove to be more efficient to teraform it once we have the technology. If it can't hold an atmosphere on its own, who is to say we can't change that?

There's really not much left and certainlly not anything that will affect humanity in any significant way. Science for the most part is done. It is all up to inventors and engineers.

Thus, you are really only making a thread about the next groundbreaking invention.

What is your idea of a relevant scientific discovery?

Michael Faraday's "inventions" were also experiments that expanded our knowledge of electricity, as a whole the discoveries proved very relevant. In the same way when we delve into genetics we are advancing science.

You're fucking stupid. Quantum physics will one day allow us to control the fabric of time and space, potentially preserving our universe, with all of its life-giving properties for an eternity.

That's the next big innovation, OP. It's really the only thing that there is for life to do in this place. If we can't do it, we're fucked.

We're doing so well on this planet at the moment because we are the only thing that can claim to be anything close to a superorganism. (And unsurprisingly, making life difficult for lesser organisms in the process.) Introducing a literal one, one which will control its own reproduction no less, would be suicide.

Proof of ghosts or paranormal experiences.
This is the wake in the advent of breakthroughs in neurosciences and most importantly quantum mechanics that allow remote viewing possible.
A new investigation in the integrity of academics will help this out as researchers will uncover past articles like water holding memory and fraudulent cases against the electric car. As part of the freedom of information act, the "new found" articles and investigations over the paranormal will be an accident but a new form and growing of science. Of course this shit has always been known before but we have new devices that were once meant for one thing will be now used for others.

I feel like we are living in the most technologically teasting times. We know about all this awesome futuristic technology that is coming, we are sure it's coming and that it's only a matter of time. But we also know that it will all take a long time and we might not be able to witness it.

But maybe it always felt like this in any century. However I think because we have more experience our future predictions are getting better.
