Scientists working at CERN have found four new "tetraquark" particles comprised of the same four subatomic building blocks. These exotic particles don't last very long, and they probably don't play an important cosmological role, but the discovery reveals the surprising diversity of the tetraquark family.

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.
