"What is likely to be the character of the quarter-century ahead of us? Personally, I am convinced that it will be filled with events that may determine the direction and even the duration of man's destiny on this planning. That an avalanche of advances will be forthcoming in science and technology is not guesswork. The new types of energy released by the atom and controlled by the electron have already proved highly effective. Numberless vital technical developments will come from our amazing network of research laboratories. But these features will be matched by even more significant political, social, and moral developments."
