<br>There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled. However, its not just our outside appearance that will changeour genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival.

For example, an Oxfordled study discovered a {67} of HIVinfected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a builtin {31} against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS.

And with geneediting {86} like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging.

Another way to jumpstart the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Marsgravitational pull is only 38% of Earths, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Marslow gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height.

However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads.

Whatever happens in the next 1,000 yearswhether we merge with machines or become themone thing is certain: The human race is always changingand the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.
