Scientists, and friends of science around the world will be marching "in support of science" this Saturday, 22 April. Eleven Australian cities will be holding marches, promoting stable public science funding, open communication of science, evidence-based policy, and greater scientific literacy and education in critical thinking.

Here's all the details, and what experts have to say about the global event.

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.

Bill Nye the Science Guy will be joining the March for Science as an honorary chair, according to a new blog post on The Planetary Society's website. Two other scientists, Mona Hanna-Attisha, public health advocate at Hurley Medical Center, and Lydia Villa-Komaroff, a well-known biologist, will also be chairing, according to a report in Buzzfeed News.
