Zenon Research
Anchor imagination in reality

Will economic growth continue forever?
Will humanity expand into space?
The most common issue in futurism is to look too much for inspiration from science-fiction.

In a world with limited resources, it is important not to waste them in directions which are likely not to succeed. By quantifying hard limits and realistic boundaries for possible future scenarios, we want to influence academics and decision-makers to avoid dead ends and focus on the most promising ideas.
