Tokyo outlines timetable for flying cars and bases on Mars
Quantum computing will reach the practical stage by 2035, and human outposts will be established on the moon and Mars by 2040, an institute under Japan’s science ministry predicts.
The National Institute of Science and Technology Policy’s report released Friday projected those dates among estimated timelines for progress on roughly 702 technologies, based on a survey of 5,352 experts.
The Science and Technology Foresight 2019 survey looked at Japan’s competitive edge in global tech. The findings will help Tokyo devise technology policy.
The S&T Foresight survey offers predictions in earthly fields such as robotics and artificial intelligence, medicine and natural disasters — plus outer space and the origins of life.
