What humans will look like in 1,000 years

Tech InsiderTITechScienceInnovationDigital cultureDesignTechnologyprostheticsHumansFutureEvolutionDNABiology

There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled.

However, it’s not just our outside appearance that will change – our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS.

And with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging.

Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Mars’ gravitational pull is only 38% of Earth’s, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Mars’ low gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height.

However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads.

Whatever happens in the next 1,000 years — whether we merge with machines or become them — one thing is certain: The human race is always changing — and the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.

So...you just told us that people will live on mars,scientist will make human head transplants and that humans will be a litle bit taller....no shit Sherlock...we know these from 90's.... nice try btw;)

Unfortunately, your video is a bit wayward in its understanding of 'evolution'. Life doesn't adapt to its environment, the most suitable characteristics for that environment survive or comparatively thrive

In 1,000 years we will not exist. 😉

Dear Future me,

Please tell me, what have I changed. Thanks :P

Just gonna go ahead and throw out the fact that evolution takes place over thousands and thousands and thousands of years... not centuries.

The idea that anything will happen rapidly and naturally in the span of 1000 years is crazy unless you're talking about incredibly minute details.

Although physical augmentation with machines could be a different type of evolution I suppose...

In 1,000 years, we'll be even taller than the mf titans...!!
well still we will die eventually because the sun overtime will swallow up the earth and also someday we wont have the moon plus global warming and ya don't get your hopes up :) have a nice day enjoy your lives and someday the earth will go bye bye lol
in 1,000 yars ill be still trying to reach 1,000 subs
we will be super Saiyan s

Umm... if we merged with robotics then at that point we would no longer be human. This is just a stupid Humanist video. 'OMG! We are killing Mother Earth! 😭 The only logical explanation is to become robots.'

I already hate future! It will be fucking sick.

Humans on Mars won't happen Even human survival outside of Earth would be hard. Species go extinct and thats okay, humans-homo sapiens- cannot avoid extinction. Extinctions wipe out 70+% of the species on the planet, and we would definitely be included! But maybe these "evolving humans" can make progress in a shorter amount of time. Computers and technology will most likely be apart of "us", which can actually be scary and exciting. Being able to transfer consciousness seems like a cool plan (like in the 2017 film Get Out), but too bad most researchers initially keep these types of innovations private and not disclosed.... right away. Anyway, if I am not mistaken the next Mass Extinction is predicated to happen in less than 1000 years. Humans have been very destructive, causing this anticipated date to be much earlier than it naturally would. But in each new Era, further progress has been made. From the evolution of mammals came humans who were very successful and harmful to over 100,000 species that could have had beneficial roles to our planet. Hopefully in the next Era, we can have technological advances without being so disastrous.

Hey guys i dont know what this says about me, but when the guy and girl had their heads swapped i was oddly attracted to the guy with the woman's body. thought you should know.

This is why I cannot stand evolutionists. They rather speculate than do science. They think everything is about evolution.

I really think this video overestimates the massively small scope of 1000 years. Bigger pupils on mars? That would take far more than 1000 years, we haven't even BEEN to mars!

Fack of I ain't having no head transplants

The first one is wrong, humans are currently evlouting to be shorter 😪😪

3017, (current year of this comment: 2017) it is approximated humanity will have destroyed earth, used up all resources, and sent help signals to alien life, by the the time the SOS signal is returned to earth, mankind will be extinct (3517) if not sooner.
