Jakub Hošek, Jakub Adamus: Futurologie a prognostika v československé televizi

Science on Czech TelevisionLecture
How did our ancestors imagine the future in the year 2000? What issues should we be dealing with now according to them? And what message could a future visit from Mars bring? These and many other questions are answered in a series of clips from the Czech television archive.
It seems that people have always been interested in what the future holds. Eventually such predictions stopped being a ‘divination from a crystal ball’ and became a subject of serious scientific inquiry through the lens of futurology and later with more economically aimed prognostics.
