Artificial Intelligence (AI):

"Artificial intelligence is a tool whereby a computer is given the ability to think and learn like the human brain. It is already used in self-driving cars, search engines like Google, etc. and will be used extensively in the near future. Some people are worried AI will be a danger to humans once they tart learning faster than us."

"Biotechnology is a technology that uses living organisms to make
useful chemicals and products. The technology is used in medicine,
food science and agriculture. A simple example is the use of yeast
to make beer, but the technology is also used to improve crops,
make biodegradable plastics, clone animals, etc."

Cryogenic Sleep:

"Cryogenic sleep means that an astronaut will be put into a very deep sleep that is comparable to hibernation. Placed in very low temperatures, the metabolism slows down so that the astronaut can survive a long time while he/she travels long distances in space. Cryogenic sleep is not yet possible but is currently being researched by NASA."

Gas planet:

Planets that are mostly made up of gases like hydrogen and helium.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are gas planets.

Goldilocks Zone:

"The Goldilocks Zone refers to a zone around a star where planets could hold life. If the planet is too far from the star, it would be too cold to hold life. If it is too close to the star, it would be too hot to hold life. Hence the "perfect temperature zone" - not too hot and not too cold!"

Hover train:

"A hover train is based on magnetic levitation (Maglev). This type of train uses one set of electromagnets to repel and push the train up off the track, and another set to move the elevated train ahead. The lack of friction means the train can go very fast. The fastest Maglev trains are in Shanghai (China) and Yamanashi (Japan)."

How fast does the Earth hurtle through space?:

Earth spins at 1000 miles per hour, so even when we are sitting still, we are in fact flying through space at incredible speed.


"An atom or group of atoms that carries a positive or negative electric charge as a result of having lost or gained one or more electrons."

Time Dilation:

Gravity on the surface of a planet makes time pass faster than it does in space. So when a twin travels to space for many years, they will find that their twin is older than them when they return to Earth.
