Blog 22: The Future and how it will affect us
We always wonder about the future and how it will affect those we love but now let's look at a broader scale. Let’s go back to the year 1960 and let’s construct a timeline so we can see how our future pans out versus those who came prior. There’s gonna be a part 2 to this Blog that comes out this week.
This Blog is in honor of the Unity 22 Launch carrying Billionaire Richard Branson and three others to space and back.

To keep this as short as possible, I’m going to do this in ten Year increments and will only mention the big things. I will try to be as accurate as possible but also as concise as possible.

Windows is released on November 20th, 1985, and continues to be the most used OS next to Chrome OS and Mac.
1990–2000: The Internet is now publicly accessible, Google, Amazon, Netflix, Salesforce, Yahoo, Nvidia, have all been established. Zip2 was established and sold to Compaq Technologies in 1994 and made Elon Musk a Multimillionaire in 1997. Paypal was founded in 1998. Internet begins a new revolution, Floppy Disk Technolgy is replaced with CD and DVD Technology.

In over 70 years we went from barely being able to use a computer without coding, to being ever reliant on them for everything we do, Tech is a big part of our lives, I’m sorry if this blog isn’t as financial as the others are but this is to know how and what we as a new generation are capable of.
Today is July 11th, 2021, A man has for the first time reached the edge of space of his own volition, as Richard Branson said, “To all you kids down there, I was once a child with a dream looking up to the stars, now I’m an adult in a spaceship with lots of other wonderful adults looking down on our beautiful, beautiful Earth. To the next generation of dreamers, if we can do this, just imagine what you can do!”
That sentiment should be used to push us forward to the next frontier.
So what does the launch schedule of absolutely historic launches look like.
Blue Origin: July 20th, Jeff Bezos, His Brother, and One more, after paying 28 Million as well as a Trained Astronaut is going to be the first Privately paying customers to head to the Karman Line aboard a Traditional Rocket. This Will Set the Financial World Ablaze, Amazon’s Stock is one to watch… OOPS check out the Watchlist tomorrow morning… hehe…
Inspiration 4: Some time in Mid September, As a sponsored Flight by Stripe4 Technologies and SpaceX, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule, probably Resilience, will be retrofitted with a glass dome to allow four astronauts, Chris Sembroski(Won the Shift4 Competition)Jared Isaacman(Commander and Buyer of all four seats), Hayley Arceneaux(St. Judes Hospital Donation Seat)and Sian Proctor(Pilot) to view the earth from another perspective. None of these people are certified astronauts and none of them other than really Issacman have any real flight experience who has about 1000 hours worth, Sian Proctor has some experience as well but not as much as Issacman who owns and regularly flies a Russian Fighter Jet, This flight will actually reach orbit unlike Bezos and Branson’s flights and remain in orbit for 3 days.
In today’s society with everything that’s going on, it’s quite obvious how the way we are going to evolve is. We will continue working on Rocket Tech with Starship and others paving the way for Cheap Launchers to lift off.
Rockets will end up at some point replacing most Jumbo Jets and other big cargo vessels other than maybe sea vessels.
We will have had a colony on the moon and have landed on Mars.We will have mined several asteroids and used Ion Propulsive Technology to travel much farther.
We will begin using and creating new and more cost effective ways to travel into space like Rail Guns, a Subway like ElectroMag Rail that launches you directly into space and to other railports on the moon, mars and probably other planet. These can also be used to travel from places here on Earth.
The Internet will at some point be so smart it will use a string of AI to predict everything you’ll need before you need it. In conjunction with your smartphone which will be able to repair itself and do many things we think are not possible as it will be able to tell everything about you and know what you want before you want it along with who you wanna call and communicate with.
Media and Gaming
Conventional Television will eventually release paid streaming services as partners with Netflix, Disney+, Youtube and Hulu.
YouTube TV will become a model as to what Live TV will become as now it will only feature what you curate it to and over time it will get to know you better.
Social Media will directly and actively integrate with users via Ads and other means. Spotify will continue to use QR codes in ads and other media to generate playlists and other means of listening to music.Instagram will be able to adapt to new interests and to other people simultaneously as well as make viewing bilaterally public or private based on how the user is feeling.
VR will be used to simulate 4D experiences in movies and in gaming, so if you get shot in COD, you’ll be able to feel it.
