When will humans land on Venus? When will we have robot cats? And when will the aliens finally come? Science fiction offers some potential answers to these burning questions.

The timeline below, created by designer Giorgia Lupi and her design team at Accurat for the blog Brain Pickings, lays out 62 future events predicted by various works of science fiction, from "Hunger Games" to Isaac Asimov.

Here's a selection:

2012: The Titanic is resurrected from the ocean floor. ("The Ghost from the Grand Banks," Arthur C. Clarke)

2019: The U.S. loses its position as world leader to Japan. Extraterrestrial life is detected. ("The Sparrow," Marry D. Russel)

2020: The Internet can be accessed directly through your brain. ("Air," Geoff Ryman)

2024: After WW4, women become a scarce natural resource. ("A Boy and His Dog," Harlan Ellison)

2027: Lady Gaga arrested for civil disobedience after winning Nobel Peace Prize. ("Six Months, Three Days," Charlie J. Anders)

2030: New York is enclosed in a big dome. ("Neuromancer," William Gibson)

And so on.

The timeline is kind of complex, and a couple of the paragraphs are still in Lupi's native Italian. But it's still worth checking out the horizontal axis, which lays out the year each sci-fi event is supposed to take place.

The vertical axis shows the year the sci-fi novel was published. Positive events are shown in red, negative events in black, and neutral events in brown, while the differently shaped symbols indicate different kinds of events, whether environmental or political.

Here is the timeline for the next hundred years. (Click here for a large version of the entire graphic that you can zoom into.)

And here is the timeline from 2116 all the way to 802,701:

The good news, according to Lupi, is that in the year 802,701 the world will still exist and be generally okay.
