What is BBC Future? Well, for starters we are about so much more than making predictions.

Our mission statement is simple:

"Making you smarter every day."

BBC Future was born because you told us you wanted more in-depth coverage of science, health and technology – so we aim to provide expert analysis and features about the big ideas shaping the world, and the new insights challenging what we think we know about ourselves.

We are not a futurology website (although we dabble). We are a guide to how to live more intelligently in a fast-changing world. A home for the insatiably curious.

We are a guide to how to live more intelligently in a fast-changing world

Our interests are broad – as we're sure yours are too – so we cover everything from brains and bodies to tomorrow's transport; from everyday science to the limits of the possible and the frontiers of human endeavour.

Every page you visit here should expand your mind. Have a look around.

And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, ask us a question via the usual channels: FacebookTwitterLinkedIn, Instagram, delivery drone or brain-to-brain communication.
