Science Fiction And The Future

Probably not a man who never really thought about his future. What will happen tomorrow, after tomorrow, next month, a year? What awaits mankind in the future? How will the civilization of people who are achieving scientific and technological progress we see in a hundred years? No science can predict the future development options with reasonable certainty.
