I’ve always been fascinated by the future. I’d just love to know how life will change. What are the wonder materials that will change the world? Will we find life on other planets? When will we create robots as intelligent as human beings? All of these are topics we’ve covered recently in BBC Focus Magazine, alongside articles on the workings of the human brain and the quest to build a starship to travel faster than light. Sometimes, though, the biggest surprises are rather more down to Earth. From reading articles in BBC Focus Magazine I’ve discovered the best ways of keeping cool in summer, what cats are really thinking, and what psychologists recommend we do to stay happy. If, like me, you always want to find out more, I’m sure you’ll love BBC Focus Magazine too.
