2019 is about to come to an end. In the field of science, this has been the year in which the first photograph of the history of a black hole has been published. Artificial intelligence has managed to win in strategy video games and in poker and quantum computers have made a great leap. What will arrive in 2020? It is difficult to predict what will happen in fields that advance at vertigo speed, but there are certain certain things, as “Nature” advances. During this year two ambitious robots will be sent to Mars, an image of the black hole in the center of the Milky Way will be obtained and the foundations of a couple of crucial facilities will be laid to expand the borders of physics. Synthetic organs, artificial life and the genetic editing technique CRISPR will also be protagonists. .
