BABA Vanga, the blind mystic who many claim predicted 9/11, Brexit and the rise of ISIS, had two major predictions for 2018.
The Bulgarian peasant, who correctly predicted that the 44th president of the US would be African-American, has said China will become the world’s next “super power” – even taking over the US.
She also predicted “a new form of energy” will be discovered on Venus.
There are not currently plans to spend a space mission to Venus.
However the Parker Solar Probe, named after the solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker, is due to launch in July 2018.
And while it will not actually land on Venus, it will use the planet’s gravitational force to achieve multiple passes of the Sun.
Ms Vanga’s second prediction could also be plausible because China’s economy has significantly rocketed in recent years.
It was recently predicted China’s contribution to GDP would surpass that of America’s by 2018, according to research group The Conference Board.
The US contributed to 16.7 per cent of the world’s economy in 2015. But this is expected to drop to 14.9 per cent by 2025, according to Forbes.
Whereas, Beijing’s economy rose to 15.6 per cent in 2015 from 1970 when it was only responsible for just 4.1 per cent of the world’s economy.
Ms Vanga is credited with predicting the Boxing Day Tsunami and the 9/11 terror attacks, and Mr Obama’s presidency.
The Bulgarian – who died in 1996 aged 85 – has long been valued as a master prophet because of her purported 85 per cent success rate.
Ms Vanga, often referred to as “Nostradamus from the Balkans”, made hundreds of predictions during her 50-year career as a clairvoyant – with many alluding to naturally disasters.
Her predictions go all the way to the 51st century – when she said the world would end.
