Let us just try to imagine the world in 50 years. If anyone tried to write such an article about today’s world 50 years ago, in 1960, the author would most likely be ridiculed for predictions about bullet trains, cell phones and many other things that we consider common nowadays.
What will the world be like in 50 years? Let’s imagine what may happen in Russia in 2060.
“Another alien spaceship landed on Moscow’s Red Square yesterday. It became the 48th extraterrestrial delegation that landed on the Earth during the recent five years. The delegation arrived to establish an official diplomatic contact with planet Earth. The delegation was welcomed by a special committee of the United Government of Eurasia for Intergalactic Affairs. A crowd of nearly 200 activists of Terrestrials Against Extraterrestrials Movement was seen nearby.
The first official contact with extraterrestrial civilizations took place in December of 2055. Forty-eight alien spaceships have landed on the Earth since then. All the delegations offered their friendship to humans. A special protocol was developed for official contacts. Aliens shall notify humans of their visit to Earth one month in advance. They shall leave their main spaceship on the Moon and arrive to Earth on board a satellite spacecraft.

The Moscow Zoo has recently acquired another baby mammoth. The mammoth was recovered many years ago, after the launch of the cloning of living creatures.

Russian divers finally found the legendary Tunguska Meteorite, which proved to be a large alien spaceship. The spaceship was found on the bottom of the lake. Russian scientists determined that the spaceship rammed into Earth after a serious breakdown on board. However, the spaceship does not pose any interest to modern-day researchers: Similar spacecraft was found several years ago on Mars and Jupiter’s satellites.
On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
Vladimir Putin's aircraft landed on Hmeymim airbase of the Russian Air Force in Syria in the morning of December 11
