Metaphysical speculation[edit]

  • Isaac Newton predicted that the world, according to his interpretation of the Bible, would end no sooner than 2060.[11]

In fiction[edit]

  • In The Planet of Doubt, the Young expedition explores Uranus.
  • The storyline of the anime The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz is set in the year 2060.
  • On September 14, in the game Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, the United Nations Starship Unity launches from the remnants of Earth to the Alpha Centauri System and the planet Chiron.
  • BE, a concept album by Swedish progressive metal band Pain of Salvation, tells that in this year the human population will be reduced to only 1.2 million.
  • In the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Jonathan Irons, the CEO of Atlas, a privatized military corporation, carries out a domestic terror attack by destroying the Golden Gate Bridge on June 15, killing hundreds of thousands, effectively triggering a third World War, which he states will be 'the end of all wars.'
