For so many nerds, the Hubble space telescope feels more like a friend than a hunk of metal in the cold vacuum of space -- a friend whose job you're super jealous of. The 'scope, which launched on the space shuttle Discovery in 1990, has sent back some of the most incredible images from the final frontier -- over 1.3 million observations of planets, galaxies and more, all while hurling about our planet at 27,359km/h from its vantage point in low Earth orbit.

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.
