The $2 billion expansion of the Snowy Mountains hydro scheme, dubbed "Snowy Hyrdo 2.0", is set to be fast-tracked - with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announcing today $8 million in funding towards a $29 million feasibility study on the project.

The upgrade aims to increase the 4,000 megawatt output by 50 per cent - a plan that will power up to 500,000 homes, and create 5,000 new jobs.

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.
