What would the world be like in 100 years? What about 1000 years?

Just use your imagination and some realistic possibilities what can happen technological advancements and how the world would be like all futuristic. If possible I would like you to write long answers and I can have good time reading them for long time to come.

Update:

PhotonX - If i needed help with essay, I would have posted this question on homework section

    I can't imagine 100 years from now looking much different.

    Humanity will finally have got it's backside in gear to tackle climate change by then as it will no longer have the option of prevaricating. I do expect some sort of colossal geo-engineering projects going on like mass cloud seeding, carbon sequestration plants or altering the atmospheric composition with heat reflecting molecules.

    Fossil fuels will probably still be lingering but will have become a minor addition to the world's energy supplies. I think nuclear fusion reactors will be being built in the world's richest countries in large numbers. Fusion works by compressing hydrogen into helium the same way the sun generates energy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iter

    Cars will be electrically powered or hydrogen/methanol fuel cell powered.

    Computers will have become so ubiquitous and small that they are worn on and powered by the body. There will no longer be any distinction between TV, phone or games consoles as any computer would be powerful enough to do any media function required of it. There will still be big mainframe machines used for cloud computing and scientific research purposes. Direct brain control of computers may have entered the market by then, as will the first domestic robots.

    Most other patterns of life will probably be unchanged although we may be seeing the advent of synthetic meat products on supermarket shelves.

    Space exploration will not have moved on very far. Space tourism will be a growing sector based on space planes that can ferry people to orbit fairly cheaply

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skylon_%28spacecraft%...

    There may finally be a permenant research base on the moon which won't be for tourists. There will also have been manned visits to Mars and potentially to some near earth asteroids with an eye to prospecting them for future mining. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroid_mining

    As for a thousand years from now... I really can't say much. Life patterns could have changed so much that I can't begin to predict where humanity will be by then.

    I think we will be living throughout the solar system by then, potentially on outposts as distant as Triton in Neptune orbit. However I don't think anyone will have left the solar system although some interstellar probes travelling at something like 80% the speed of light may have been dispatched to nearby stars with interesting exo-planets. I imagine various faster-than-light wild goose chases will have been attempted but I doubt any would work. Robots may potentially outnumber humans, especially away from Earth where the ratio could be 5 to 1.

    Computers will be unimaginably advanced, and utilising things like quantum entanglement for data transmission. Humans will be entirely capable of editing and altering their DNA and any other creature's DNA at whim. Things like cancer will be a distant historical footnote.

    Whether humans have solved their personal issues like than such as greed, power lust and an inclination towards despotism I don't know. Probably not. No matter how fancy our technology, there'll always be some humans who see everything and think "mine!"

      We have the same amount of impact on the planet and climate change as squirrel has on us... Literally no impact. We're not that powerful... If the planet found us to be a nuisance, the "Earth would shake us off like a bad case of fleas" (George Carlin)...

    I don't know how many people are going to be interested in writing your long essay for you, so you can have a good time plagiarizing the answers. Just use your imagination, though,and imagine that such questions have been asked here a thousand times before. The Search Answers tool is your friend

    people can live and work from anywhere as as they have access to UPS/Fedex to move a box and access to the web to move data.

    All Data will now be in the cloud. all data is now in the cloud or cloud computing
