You thought that the science of the future was all hoverboards and space travel? Think again! Every day, scientists come up with ingenious solutions and surprising discoveries that will define our future. In What’s Next?, Radio 4 favourite Jim Al-Khalili and a group of highly qualified co-contributors bin the crystal ball and use cutting-edge science to give us a glimpse of what’s in store for us all: Teleportation? The cure for disease? The answer to climate change? And whither bionics? A truly fascinating hour is certainly in store!
