Dara and the team attempt to discover what the future may hold over the next fifty years.
Science journalist Alok Jha travels to America to meet the latest generation of humanoid robots including one that has mastered that most human of attributes - a sense of touch. The team also investigate the most revolutionary brain-imaging techniques that promise to unlock the mysteries of our minds. Professor Mark Miodownik meets some pioneering engineers who plan to mine the moon, while in the studio Dara and Mark attempt some very low temperature experiments as they explore cryonics, the practice of freezing yourself after death. Plus, what self-respecting science show about the future would be complete without checking out the fashions of tomorrow?
'Supercooling' is when you chill a liquid below its freezing point without it becoming solid. Try this amazing trick by following Mark's simple step-by-step instructions.
Freeze me for the future
