Captured at the Flying Legends Airshow at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. More about this iconic US built World War 2 plane on Wikipedia. This particular model H75-C1 (number 82) is one of (possibly the only) Hawk to be restored to flying condition. Please click on the photo for more viewing options on Flickr.

This is what the future may look like. We probably won’t need a babelfish in our ears to translate languages. While this is only a technology demonstrator, it has enormous potential.
And this could have other benefits too – saving languages from extinction. Recent reports suggest that many thousands of languages will be extinct by the turn of this century as native speakers increasingly turn to international languages for economic reasons. With a translator (in the next 4-5 decades), the need to be able to speak another language fluently may no longer be necessary, and the increasingly boring harmonisation of the world may yet be stopped.
