Prophecies by the late Baba Vanga are hinting the rise of China as a superpower and the discovery of a new energy form on Venus this 2018.
The blind mystic from Bulgaria died in 1996 at age of 85 but has left a series of predictions for up to the 51st century, when she said the end of the world will occur.
Nostradamus Of Bulgaria Foresees Global Events, Calamities
Known as the "Nostradamus of the Balkans", she is most famous for a prophecy she made in 1989 that describes the 9/11 attack. It said that the American brothers will be attacked by birds made of steel, causing their fall and shedding blood of the innocent.
Another of her predictions state that Europe will cease to exist as 2016 closes. Many have interpreted this as the Brexit, which brought on conflict several months after the British Parliament voted to leave the European Union in June 2016.
China To Overtake America, Scientists To Uncover New Form Of Energy
More than 40 years ago, China was producing only 4.1 percent of the global economy. This figure jumped to 15.6 percent in 2015 and continues to rise each year. As for the United States, the country's current contribution to the global economy of 16.7 percent is anticipated to decrease to 14.9 percent by 2025.
With these statistics, many reports agree with Baba Vanga's predictions for 2018 saying that China has a huge potential to overtake the United States in terms of economic prosperity.
Meanwhile, the Venus discovery may not occur as space agencies have no missions slated for such planet.
NASA's Solar Probe Plus indirectly involves the planet by using its gravitational force to explore the outer corona of the sun. It is the first attempt to fly directly into the star's atmosphere and has been announced for launch by summer 2018.
Nostradamus, Hawking Predict World War III And Transfer To Another Planet
There are several other personalities known for making predictions about the future. Nostradamus, a 16th-century physician, has predicted that Donald Trump's victory will lead to World War III. His prophecy, recorded in the form of poetry, has accurately described the contention among Trump's supporters and dissenters upon his election as president.
Although he is no mystic, Stephen Hawking has predicted in 2016 that Earth could no longer support human life after a thousand years. This is why he encourages the intensification of efforts to explore other habitable planets.
