What Now? is a question answered by a number of a number of scientists and science writers at Edge.org, which asked them to point their vision towards the world to come. Bruce Sterling assesses the probability of certain outcomes of strife between America and the Middle East. Richard Dawkins writes about what we stand to lose if we are faced with a new Dark age. Freeman Dyson offers chilling thoughts regarding his memories of joy while listening to the bombing of London as a teenager in London in 1940.
