The entire Futura team wishes you a happy new year 2023 and may all your dearest and wildest wishes come true.
So that’s all: 2022 is behind us, and the year that is about to begin feeds all our hopes for a better world and, of course, in the field of science, which will be marked by a great harvest of discoveries, all so incredible. and decisive as each other.
2023, a historic year?
Yes, 2023 may go down in history as the year of discovering the nature of the elusive and increasingly mysterious dark matter. Or its ultimate refutation. A year that can also be marked by the development of HIV vaccines, against some types of cancer and infectious diseases. In any case, we hope, as we wish, that the Covid-19 pandemic, which has been ravaging our societies for three years, will go away.
sideways Tech2023 could be decisive for the fate of virtual reality and Metaand watch Apple’s presentation of a mixed reality headset, as persistent rumors assume. But will this change the situation? Before you know it, head to the legendary CES in Las Vegas in January to be wowed.
2023, a major turning point for Earth?
In the ground plane (Planet section), expectations for 2023 are high with, in particular, the hope shared by many of the planet’s inhabitants and scientists that this year will be that of the “big change” undertaken by our civilizations in reducing massive greenhouse gas emissions . greenhouse effect so that global warming does not exceed the threshold of +1.5°C (and especially not +2°C), promised by the States in 2015 in the Paris Agreement.
BECAUSE if we don’t do it nowwe will almost certainly be headed for warming above 4°C, which would be catastrophic and make our world uninhabitable for a large number of living things, including sapiens which will not support very frequent extreme temperatures, repeated floods, bad harvests, a world where food and drinking water will be increasingly difficult to find, etc. For more than four decades, scientists have been warning about what needs to be done before the situation gets out of hand. equally for biodiversity. Now we are on the threshold of several points of no returnthey have warned us throughout 2022.
Futura’s big announcements in 2022
In 2022 there was bad news, but also good news. At Futura, we had the pleasure of discovering science news on a daily basis through new “clothes”: a page redesigned from top to bottom with a more beautiful and modern design than ever aimed at improving your navigation and discovering our multiple universes ( news, podcasts, videos, slideshows, files, etc.) and sections (each with its own color). one” dark fashion (dark mode) allows for more comfortable reading when in a low-light environment. And remember we have a mode premiumwith many privileges including freedom from advertising.
The year 2022 was also marked for Futura with the release of its first paper magazine in kiosks and newspapers. A great adventure where science takes a central place of course, but in a new form, off the paths of the Web. A version that turns the essay and magazine into a quarterly. What’s more, you may still be one of the privileged few who will receive #1 of this new formula before everyone else. Discover the campaign and content of this upcoming issue will be published soon.
In 2023, Futura will continue to be loud and clear the values that have made its essence and success for two decades : independence and rigor in information, satisfaction in popularizing science and making it accessible to as many people as possible, inclusiveness and support for the protection of the Earth. Let’s inspire the future!
All our best wishes for 2023!
