What I had felt someday is that as the technology advances, new scientific theories are constructed ... built upon previously existing body of knowledge... the contemporary science student will tend to spend more and more amount of time in learning all the previous works rather than do his own creative work or even think of challenging previous works. I guess the pre-mid-20th century scientists were just lucky enough not to be burdened by a plethora of already established theories.
Know thyself.

I too have wondered how long it would take to finish education in the future. The age right now is around 24 or so while back in the medieval ages, education was simply grammar school i.e. around 6 years.
