Astronomical predictions for the 22nd century

List of the long total solar eclipses

  • June 3, 2114 : Solar eclipse[1] of 6 min 32 s, saros 139.
  • June 13, 2132 : Solar eclipse[2] of 6 min 55 s, saros 139.
  • June 25, 2150 : Solar eclipse[3] of 7 min 14 s, du saros 139.
    Exceeding 7 minutes of totality, this will be the first time this has happened in 177 years; the last one occurred on June 30, 1973[4] when the Concorde prototype followed the totality spot during 73 minutes.
  • July 5, 2168 : Solar eclipse[5] of 7 min 26 s, saros 139.
  • July 16, 2186 : Solar eclipse[6] of 7 min 29 s (very close to the theoretical maximum), saros 139, "crowing" this serie.
    This is predicted to be the longest eclipse during the current 10,000 year period, from 4000 BC to AD 6000 (eclipse predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA/GSFC.DEPP)[7].

Other phenomena

  • August, 2113: First time Pluto reaches aphelion since its discovery.

  • 2148: Triple conjunction MarsSaturn.
  • 2169–2199: With an estimated probability of 0.07 %, Apollo asteroid 1999 RQ36 could hit the Earth.
  • 2170: Triple conjunction MarsJupiter.

Predictions

By 2200, it is predicted that a Type I civilization will form under the Kardashev scale, according to Nikolai Kardashev's extrapolation of 1% energy usage growth per year.[9]

According to the UN Population Bureau, life expectancy in 2200 will be around 100 for developed countries and the world population will be about 8.5 billion. However, the UN has warned that these projections could be invalidated by any change and progress in future life extension technology and discoveries, as well as changes in future birthrates.[10]

Other predictions

  • March 17, 2160 – Unless changes are made as to when Easter can be observed, this particular March 17 will fall within Holy Week for the first time since 2008 and fall on the same day (Monday) as it did in that year, likely requiring the movement of the Feast of Saint Patrick's Day to another date.[11]

Science fiction set in the 22nd century

Literature (novels, short stories, comics)

Television and film

  • A.I. Artificial Intelligence takes place in 2104, then skips to 4104, when Earth is in the Post-Human Extinction period.
  • The first Alien film takes place in 2122 according to the Alien Universe Timeline. The sequels Aliens and Alien 3 both take place in 2179.
  • Bicentennial Man, about half the events of this movie take place here.
  • In Doctor Who characters have used time-travel to visit various dates in the 22nd century.
  • The events of BraveStarr take place in the 22nd century on the planet New Texas.
  • The events of CLAMP's Chobits take place in the 22nd century.
  • The events of Captain Power occur in the year 2147.
  • The events of the Captain Video begin in the year 2149.
  • Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D., a film adaptation of the second Doctor Who TV story to feature the Daleks.
  • Gundam Seed, an alternate-universe version of Mobile Suit Gundam (the Cosmic Era calendar begins about 10 years after the predicted oil crash of the mid-21st century, placing the beginning of the CE calendar sometime between 2040 and 2090, the series would therefore take place sometime between 2111 and 2161).
  • DT Eightron, an anime set on the year 2187.
  • Phil of the Future, a Disney Channel series. (The Diffys, the main characters, are from this era (2121) before they crash in 2004; theme song refers to Phil as a "22nd Century man").
  • Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, an animated television series with Sherlock Holmes in a science fiction setting.
  • Space Battleship Yamato was launched on October 9, 2199 on its desperate mission to save the earth in the Anime series of the same name.
  • Wonderful Days, a South Korean animated science fiction film, takes place in the year 2142.
  • Hyperdrive, a British sitcom features the adventures of the crew of the HMS Camden Lock as they pursue Britain's interests in 2151.
  • Star Trek: Enterprise (2151–2161). The first starship capable of reaching Warp 5 is launched from Earth, leading to unprecedented exploration of space, including first contacts with the Klingons, Andorians, and Romulans. According to this series, an area of Earth stretching from Florida to Venezuela will be devastated by an alien attack in 2153, resulting in the death of 7 million people. Enterprise is decommissioned in 2161, just prior to the establishment of the United Federation of Planets.
  • According to Star Trek, the Earth-Romulan War will be fought between 2156 and 2160, which results in the establishment of the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet on October 11, 2161. Star Trek also predicts human colonization of Mars by 2103.
  • The Matrix, a science fiction film, in which the protagonist Neo discovers that all what he believed was a reality is in fact computer simulation. Morpheus, another character of the movie, identifies the events of the movie as being set in the years around 2199. However, it should be noted that it was mentioned in the film Matrix Reloaded that the movie took place in the 6th incarnation of The Matrix. By Morpheus's estimation, then, of there being an approximate 200 year difference between the era in the Matrix and the era of the real world, with the knowledge that Neo's time is actually the 6th incarnation of the Matrix (and an estimated 200 years or so for each incarnation), that could potentially mean the year in the real world is closer to the year 3399. However, since the first and second Matrix sequels failed, it could be safe to assume they did not last 200 years each. Thus, the current year of the real world could be anywhere between approximately 2199 and 3399. Presumably, only the Machines would know for certain.

  • In A.I., a science fiction film that is based on a short story entitled "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long" by Brian Aldiss, the story begins sometime in the 22nd century when androids with very high levels of artificial intelligence (called mechas, short for "mechanisms," i.e. synthetic life) have become commonplace.
  • John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars was set in the year 2176.
