When Contact first opened, 20 years ago, I thought it was a masterpiece. For a soon-to-be high school senior, Robert Zemeckis' adaptation of Carl Sagan's novel was the perfect Hollywood mix of thought-provoking ideas and spectacle. It wasn't until years later I realised how divided fellow films fans were on the film. So I decided to look back and see what Contact has to offer in 2017.

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.
