To celebrate this, we've curated some of our most popular learning resources - from articles on whether robots should have rights, to explainers on how gene editing could improve our health in future, to OU research that's landed us on a comet - we've got it covered. 

We're also co-producing a number of programmes with the BBC for Tomorrow's World, including Britain's Greatest Invention and Horizon: 10 Things You Need to Know about the Future. In the meantime, enjoy an abundance of FREE learning on the ever-changing world of science:
