Like other species, we are the products of millions of years of adaptation. Modern humans migrated from Africa between 80,000 and 50,000 years ago. Our original genetic makeup was appropriate for the warm climates where we first evolved from early hominins to humans, from knuckle-walkers to hunters and gatherers. But a lot has happened since then, as humans have expanded around the world and the demands posed by new challenges have altered our genetic makeup. Real-life examples of this evolution are everywhere.
In our April cover story, you’ll see how technology is creating new frontiers for human development, faster than our ancestors could have dreamed. From implants that give “cyborg” humans greater capabilities, to gene-editing tools that could bring about human-directed evolution, the pace of change could be breathtaking.
