How can we sustain infinite growth on a finite planet?
A simple straight answer to your question is a big "NO", we cannot sustain infinite growth with finite resource. but let me also highlight that finite is a term invented to help human mind comprehend and reach a little beyond what it can comprehend, each century pushed the boundary of finite into the ever expanding space of infinite. There are two ways of looking for a solution, one difficult way is to limit humans greed, I know what I am saying when I say difficult way, the other is to keep exploring new worlds which is an easy way. If we look into history, the new world of America or a trade route to India was the necessity of the europeans of the day. Finding new worlds they did more because it was needed, the cold climate was unable to sustain the greed of the day within Europe and find they did eventually and the word was never the same again. Humans take the easy route of reaching out to new worlds to sustain our greed.

Strange questions that humans have not yet found an answer for!
while looking for life on other planets, why do we assume it is necessary to have oxygen, water ? does this mean life will only exist if others breath oxygen and drink water and survive in sunlight ? why cannot life exist with arsenic as primary element or for that matter an element which earthlings are not even aware of it ? hence my question is how do we define life ?

Is modern communication going to produce a generation that doesn't understand body language or verbal expression?
The impact of modern communication devices (mobile, texting, twitter, facebook etc..) has to be seen as a continuum in the evolution of humans. The printing press did impact the way people interact, so did the telephone, all visual media have impacted human interactions, including the emotional part of the communication. Any new medium will take time to settle down and be part of the evolution, humans are bundles of emotions, they will find ways to express themselves, texting service well, started as texting and eventually the emoticons have come in, because humans have that innate desire to express themselves emotionally, also we need to understand that human's personal interactions i.e meeting face to face has increased many fold over the past 200 years, compared to the previous 5000 years, more interactions provide more options to adjust to emotional states of others, we cannot expect changes in human behavior in a span of 15 - 20 years, just like the printing press helped understand both body language and verbal expression, the modern communication devices will only help to take humans ability to understand and be understood well, hence I believe the modern communication options will not impact humans ability to understand body language.

What will university education look like in 20 years?
Future Classes will be like TED talks, participants come with a singular purpose of exposing themselves to new ideas new thoughts, the High School will equip "Under Grad" students with necessary general skills to understand the broad concepts, forums like TED talks will push the boundaries of thinking, the participants of such talks will be the teachers and professors who will critically evaluate the thoughts being presented, "Students" will learn by the mistakes they make, a student who achieves success early in life will find his grades struck between medium to high, because his "failure" marks will be very low. The cost of higher education will actually come down, as the value for a paper based degree will come down. It is the idea and its implementation and its contribution to future knowledge which will earn the academic recognition.
