The blind Eastern European psychic, who died in 1996, made numerous predictions about major world events.
Born in Bulgaria in 1911, Baba Vanga spent most of her life in the Kozhuh mountains and was renowned the world over for her prophetic predictions about the future.
While a great deal of skepticism has always surrounded the accuracy of these predictions, many people remain adamant that she had successfully foretold a wide range of major global events.
This prediction from 1989, for instance, was later thought to be about the 9/11 terrorist attacks:"Horror, horror! The American brothers will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing."
Vanga, who became known as the 'Nostradamus from the Balkans', has also been credited with predicting Brexit and the inauguration of President Barack Obama.
For the year 2018, her predictions suggest that China will overtake the US as the world's next super power and that a 'new form of energy' will be discovered on the planet Venus.
Intriguingly, a NASA spacecraft that will visit the Sun's corona is due to launch in 2018 and although it will not land on Venus, it will use the planet as a gravitational slingshot to help it reach its target.
Whether it will discover anything interesting while it is there however remains to be seen.
