Ever Wonder What People Will Look Like 1000 Years From Now?

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


It's amazing to think about just how much humans have evolved over the last few thousand years. Breakthroughs in science have made humans much better at what they do best: living.

Because human beings evolve and adapt to their surroundings over time, this isn't surprising. But it brings up the popular question of what will people be like in the future? There are lots of theories, but almost everyone can agree on the fact that some day, technology will somehow be integrated into our own bodies, giving us superhuman abilities out of the box.

As ASAPScience points, out, science has increased the life expectancy of human beings by up to 20 years over just the last 65 years, and humans are now also growing taller than ever before.

Some theories about what humans may look like point to taller, thinner people with darker skin, which would be the result of adapting to a warmer planet temperature that continues to rise.

Scientists also want to put humans on other planets, which means humans may even adapt to live in those otherworldly conditions rather than only as Earthlings. The idea that humans could be drastically different in the next 1000 years or so continues to swirl around, but there are many others that think people will look and behave like they do now even 1000 years from now.
