The John D. Mackay Memorial Lecture

In an unstable world, a week has become a long time to look ahead. But when Prof. Tom Stevenson spoke in the first Orkney Science Festival in 1991, he was right on target in introducing a new invention with huge long-term significance – a video camera on a chip, a key part of so much of our lives and links today. He has taken part every year since, and now, opening this 30th Festival, he predicts again, this time to 30 years from now. For energy, for work, for survival – how will Orkney look in the world of 2050?
