Expand human knowledge

What we will do next:

Expand human knowledge

Gravity. Evolution. Dark matter. DNA. Our ideas have reset the boundaries of human knowledge. But the biggest discoveries lie ahead. New forms of energy. New modes of transport. An end to extreme poverty. An answer to climate change. A planet that is self-sufficient. Big data. Quantum computing. Artificial intelligence. Parallel universes. By expanding human knowledge, we will expand humanity’s potential.
