Science forecast - what will happen in the next 50 years?

Some brilliant minds discuss their theories.

Chances are that no one will pick the right answer, but its interesting anyway.

My bets from the list (large that it is... )

Chris McKay - Alien life
A "second genesis" of life! In the next 50 years we may find evidence of alien life frozen in the ancient Martian permafrost, perhaps dead but biochemically preserved.

(Me - I predict that we will find the remains of life on Mars, but nothing living, also that space will be empty and sterile not teaming in intelligent life as we know it.)

Francis Collins genetics
Fifty years from now, if I avoid crashing my motorcycle in the interim, I will be 106. If the advances that I envision from the genome revolution are achieved in that time span, millions of my comrades in the baby boom generation will have joined Generation C to become healthy centenarians enjoying active lives.

(Me - I predict some in the west will live to very old ages because of their ability to access technology, while many many more will not have the money or ability to access these life saving tools)
