Two researchers say the human face is in for some eye-popping changes in the future.
100,000 years from now, they predict we'll have massive heads to accommodate our growing, super-sized brains. Our eyes will be so huge, they’ll make us look like owls.
Computational geneticist Alan Kwan, who conducted the futuristic study, says “It’s one possible outcome.” He also says our skin will change to a darker pigment to protect us from dangerous UV rays.
So will the human race of the future really make us look like space aliens here on our own planet?
“This is more scientific speculation than scientific research,” says Kwan.
Thanks goodness we won't be around to see the changes.
