Earlier this month, news broke that the Pentagon had secretly run a $US22 million program to investigate unidentified flying objects - and obtained evidence including footage of Navy F/A-18 pilots chasing a strange craft off the coast of San Diego in 2004 and an alleged warehouse of mysterious "alloys." To this list of evidence we can add the considerably less compelling testimony of The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro, who this week told the Hollywood Reporter he saw a "crappy" UFO when he was younger.

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.
