Our digital landscape is invisible. Muscle and machinery have been replaced with qubits and quantum mechanics. Take the large Hadron collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle collider and experimental facility ever built, which will allow physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and advance human understanding of physical laws. Or France’sInternational Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) – a collaboration between 35 nations to build a magnetic fusion device that will explore the feasibility of harnessing the same carbon-free energy that powers the stars. These projects and others hold galactic implications to usher in a completely new technological age.
