The future; an unknown frontier. A world with technology right at the limit of what’s possible. Where science fiction meets science reality... Or wait - aren’t we there already? At this very moment, there are teams of people working on advanced carbon capture machines. Geneticists designing enzymes that can eat plastic. Even people developing robot minds that could solve the current climate crisis for us... But should we? Knowing it could potentially go wrong?
