Jobs may be scarce today, but if current trends hold, pretty soon there will be plenty of fun, lucrative gigs. If you have the vision to start prepping now, you could be flying starships, reading minds, or manning a fusion reactor. The jobs are coming. Feel free to thank us over lunch at the hotel you built- on Mars.
Any particular reason I'm getting an "Access Denied: You are not authorized to access this page" error when I try to click "View Photo Gallery"? There doesn't seem to be any sort of pay-wall, so if you're trying to make us pay for access, you're doing it wrong.
I get it too. Very weird, I have never seen it before (until now). I get ACCESS DENIED both before and after logging in and, I have been registered with PopSci for 2 + Years.
If someone reports my comment maybe they will fix the issue.
@the first two comments, it works now and I didn't have to pay to read this article. Be patient, it just wasn't fully uploaded yet.
Anyways, a space vehicle designer would also be a REALLY cool job.
My dream job would be the guy who just sits in the beach chairs by warm, tropical lagoons drinking Coronas in the commercials.
Robert1234: There will be no good jobs in the future if global warming isn't stopped now. In fact, now may be to late. I'm almost embarrassed that Pop Sci simply ignores the obvious reality of what is coming in favor of fluff crap such as is published here. What jobs will be available when the midwest is a dust bowl again? When the oceans are up, say, 2 meters? When tropical diseases have become normal for the lower half of the United States? When the U.S. government has finished it's transition to pure Fascism, well past that of the old Italy during WWII? Perhaps armed mercenary will be a good job then? Certainly the manufacture of weapons will boom well past what we have now. Corporate prison guard will be another booming profession. Shame on Pop Sci. What they need it to honestly evaluate where the world will be in 50 years and THEN propose what will be good jobs.
In order to think future we have to fix present first or there will be no future. Our societies and industries are conducted by the presure of speculative finance system and the entire world environment is bleeding like half of world population is starving in consequence of this. Lets be strong and smart or there is nothing anybody would consider a desireable future.
Once we unite and got rats removed from finance and development world not only will recover by no time but science will make a jump never seen before. Check out we came very far in the last 50 years, now imagine all those power players and manipulations of greed and posession is burning in hell and we can develope together and freely into all fields of science under integral view of humanity, world and universe. Can you? I bet you cant because we are going to be universe citizens in no time with such a number of new jobs and adventures not fitting in here! No more deseases, tripled life span, multi dimensional perception, space exploring and expansion of humanity on other planets, we all can or could do this already if not blocked by the greed of a couple and protected by false politics.
Why dont we simply start with it instead waiting others do? Specially our friends, brothers and sisters in the US and the EU do need a jump start urgent or will fall into the nightmare of finance-politics consequences with outcomes of the worst we learned in the past. Reads dont wait for job but build yourself one and which points into the right direction. All borders but builded only in your head and if you feel small and week to do a thing than you are already the perfect flesh and blood of a no good system! Recon all great scientists and developers came out of the blue, all valuable people have been humid and small becoming giants of humanity and history.
Todays goals are implementing free and sustainable energy sources, removing all deseases, removing all chemical attacks to nature, agriculture and fishing, reducing world population by natural means (no more depth presure is equal to no more growth presure) and have a serious ass kicking to politics and show time servants of a greedy system. Plenty of jobs to do, even on the base of trade and exchange (moneyfree). Be smart instead of becoming a terrorist neither a victim.
Building a real space ship, not just a rocket might be exiting.
