National Geographic Series Explores Life One Million Years in the Future

Written by 

If the Earth survives until the year one million, what will it look like? The National Geographic Channel is currently tackling that question with a new series called Year Million, which illustrates how the planet will look in the faraway future.

The series, which premiered May 15th, explored how artificial intelligence will possibly surpass human intelligence, how disease treatment will help humans live longer, virtual reality, the internet, and more. Actor Laurence Fishburne narrates the series, which features some of the best minds in science today, including Brian Green, Ray Kurzweil, and Michio Kaku.

Green, who is a professor of physics at Columbia University, has written several books on theoretical physics. He believes that one million years from now, humans will not look as they do today and their lives will be dramatically different. He even theorizes that in the future, humans and machines may find a way to merge.

To understand how mankind might differ in one million years, scientists only have to consider how life was different one million years ago. Humans didn’t even exist at that time and technology included implements like axes and fire. Just as someone living in that time wouldn’t be able to comprehend the lives we have today, Green feels that we wouldn’t be able to comprehend how life will be different in the very distant future.
