After going through 2020 which led to only discontentment and sadness in everyone’s life from widespread of Covid -19 to losing special ones, from going jobless, to people going through depression. Everyone hopes for a happy 2021. A lot of things that were canceled in 2020 may slowly return to their pace from the new year. And if everything goes well this year, we can dare to look forward to these important Events in 2021.
#1 Tokyo Olympics
The Tokyo Olympics will start from 23 July to 8 August 2021. The IOC has ruled out hosting the Games behind closed doors so that all precautions regarding Covid 19 can be taken. Tokyo Olympics were supposed to be held in 2020 but due to Covid 19, plans were postponed to next year. The IOC says it will be a “simpler, more restrained approach,” -but that won’t stop us from indulging in the communal joy of pretending to know how gymnastics is scored.
#2 Covid-19 Immunization
In 2020, Covid 19 had already led to a number of deaths. As there was no vaccine available or as it was in the process of being manufactured till that time people had to stay at homes and take those necessary measures to avoid getting affected. 2021 has now brought good news for everyone as vaccines from different countries have cleared all their trials and are ready for use. Several countries are starting to roll out vaccination plans, and it looks like there are more vaccine authorizations on the way. Experts say we may not see some semblance of “normal” until the back half of the year. But, oh, it will be worth waiting for.
#3 Euro Cup
UEFA EURO 2020 was postponed in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The tournament will now take place from 11th June to 11th July 2021. The best European football clubs compete nine months out of the year in a tournament that eventually shaves them down to the two very best. With such a long and difficult dismissal process filled with rivalries, injuries, and dreams, the Champions League Final, hosted in a different European city each year, has a lot riding on it.
#4 NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars
Mars will get a new little inhabitant when NASA’s Perseverance rover touches down in February. Like its charming rover predecessors in the Mars Exploration Program, Perseverance will no doubt have an entire Earth-bound fandom rooting it on. The Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is part of a larger program that includes missions to the Moon as a way to prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet.
#5 Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary
Speaking of milestones, October 1 will mark the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. The park will also be unveiling lots of new things to do, including a “Ratatouille” attraction, a “Guardians of the Galaxy” ride, and a “Tron” ride.
#6 New Climate Policies and Action
2020 was supposed to be the year the world’s climate plans got on track. The EU has put a seal on plans to reduce carbon emissions and pour billions into clean energy alternatives. China, the world’s biggest polluter, has pledged to go carbon neutral by 2060. Japan, South Korea, and Canada have all made similar promises for fossil fuel reduction. And we may see more silver linings at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, this November.
#7 Entrance of 6G
It’s a generation of technology where we have seen 3G,4G, 5G, etc. Now it’s the time for 6G which means one more touch to modernization and innovation of technology. It refers to different generations of technology standards for cellular networks. It’s the level at which your cell phone, internet, and lots of other telecommunications architecture perform. Things will turn to get even faster and even better with improving things like teleworking and distance learning when more 6G networks will pop up worldwide. Japan and Korea are already working on 6G capabilities.
#8 Drone Delivery
If packages start landing at your doors then don’t get surprised as Amazon, UPS, and other companies are planning to use drones for deliveries. The Federal Aviation Administration just released new rules about “unmanned aircraft,” which will advance “the integration of drones into the national airspace system.” Amazon’s drone delivery service Prime Air got the go-ahead from the FAA earlier in 2020.
#9 Artificial Intelligence
AI technology has been a huge focal point but in 2021 we’ll see it pop up in even more places. AI has the capability to help us interpret and use medical and scientific data. For instance, if it informs about a massive pandemic that is near to hit. AI is also helping more businesses make smarter decisions about customer behavior. Wilson Pang, the chief technology officer at Appen, told Forbes he hopes that 2021 will see more companies address troubling issues of bias in AI technologies, so innovators can develop AI in responsible ways.
