Alex Davis, Editor

2020 is here! It’s a new year with new history to be made. There will be amazing technology advancements and more as 2020 will reveal what’s in store for us. We have the power to impact what people think about 2020 and the way it will change what happens moving forward. Here are some amazing things to look forward to this year and some inventions and technology that are working to be finished before this year end. There’s no doubt that 2020 will be an amazing year! 

Some things that will happen are 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo, the election for a new president, and a total eclipse! These are just some things that you should look forward to in the new year. The Washington monument opening is one thing that will be highlighted for it has been closed for about 3 years as more security and a new elevator are added to it and it should reopen to the public in September. Yahoo’s time capsule will also be opened which yahoo had invited people to put digital artifacts in to represent how life was back in 2006 and this year in 2020 it will be opened on yahoo’s 25th anniversary. An electric truck is also going to release at $125,000. Also, big readers will be fantasizing over new book releases including “A Ballard of Songbirds and Snakes” by Suzanne Collins, which is a prequel to the “Hunger Games” trilogy, and “Writers and Lovers” by popular author Lily King. 

In 2020 after 4 years the Olympics will be back! Were many people will be watching their favorite sports that athletes will compete in. The 2020 Olympics will be hosted in Tokyo with new sports such as karate, baseball, softball, sports climbing, skateboarding, and surfing. With these new exciting sports, the 2020 Olympics will definitely be worth watching. Along with this fun experience there will also be a new election were people over 18 will be able to vote for someone they want to be president and it may be someone new. People running for office include Democrats Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Joe Biden. While Donald Trump is running for president again for the Republicans. 

While some of these things may still be boring to you there will be a new rover launched into Mars that will surely affect you along with everybody else. It will be on its way to Mars over the summer in late July or early August. This means there will be two rovers on Mars as the new one joins with the curiosity rover which means twice the amount of data and more company for the curiosity rover. Also, in this innovative year there will be a medical advancement for people with peanut allergys that will help train their immune systems for peanuts. Hopefully this will decrease the severity of the allergy and maybe over time have it go away completely.  

These are some things to put up on your calendar and look forward to. Make sure to go out and have fun experiencing some things because a lot of them will only happen once and going out and experiencing these wonders will be truly fun for everybody.
