Humanity is a constantly adapting mixed salad of genetics, culture, and individuals all striving together. What will we look like in 100 years? 1,000 years? 10,000 years?! Will we even recognize ourselves? What is going to happen to us in the future? Will our cumulative culture continue to adapt and change? Will our #genetics? What will happen 1,000 years after we’ve sequenced the human genome? 10,000 years after the invention of the quantum computer? Will we be a #newspecies?

⏰ SERIES DESCRIPTION
As a crustacean poet once said, “The Human World, is a mess,” and boy was he correct. Our history is a patchwork of fossilized bones spread across the world. In the last 20 years, we’ve made huge leaps in our understanding of the human story, but we’re still trying to understand exactly *where* we came from and *why* we’re still here! This is especially confusing when you learn there were so many other ancient human-like creatures on this planet throughout our long history.
If you take one thing away from this series, I want you to know you’re a combination of millions of ancient animals toiling, adapting, evolving and breeding. Just ponder that for a while.

This is a HUGE source for all things human origins.
The species that you and all other living human beings on this planet belong to is Homo sapiens. During a time of dramatic climate change 300,000 years ago, Homo sapiens evolved in Africa. Like other early humans that were living at this time, they gathered and hunted food, and evolved behaviors that helped them respond to the challenges of survival in unstable environments.
They Don’t Make Homo Sapiens Like They Used To
Our species—and individual races—have recently made big evolutionary changes to adjust to new pressures

Some of the biggest names in science and technology have called for the colonization of Mars, but how would it affect us?
