We are still at least 15 years away from the first human mission to Mars — that’s at the earliest. But that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from skipping ahead to the future. Hulu, the online streaming service, is out with a new series Friday called “The First.” It’s set in the 2030s, and as the name implies, it imagines what that first mission might be like. In addition to getting the astrophysics right, the show producers had to get the future right. And for that they called a futurist. Amy Webb, founder of the Future Today Institute, usually helps businesses with strategy. But from time to time, she consults on films or shows set in the future. One of the questions she had to answer on “The First”: Will smartphones still be around in 15 years? She talks about it with Molly Wood. (09/13/18)
