    Poster designed by Rebeca Méndez for the 11th edition of the International Biennial of the Poster in Mexico City, where she was invited to be one of 100 designers and artists participating in the collection ‘Voices in Freedom.’ Méndez’s artwork, Circumpolar created in collaboration with her life partner and writer Adam Eeuwens, moves beyond political and national boundaries and focuses on the circumpolar flight of the arctic tern, who travels from the North Pole to the South Pole and back again, from Boreal Summer to Austral Summer, traversing 520 kilometers a day, 70,900 kilometers a year, every year of its existence. The arctic tern lives the most daylight of any creature in the world.

    If you believe in God you basically believe all was revealed at Creation, the beginning of history. When you don't believe in God you put your faith in the progress of human ability. Revelation then lies at the end of history. Where building a space colony is forward-thinking, religious order by its very nature is always backward. Seems to me there would be no need for a religious order up there.

    Beyond race, gender, class and nationality one can define a human by personal type. Two tests exist readily available online.

    At Human Metrics I answered 72 Yes/No questions to find out that among 16 possible types I am an INFP, or a Healer, which apparently only pops up 1 in 100, so if the permanent colony is 100 people divided by world population I will take the spot of the white european male without college degree who is a 'healer'.

    With the enneagram method based on nine archetypes I answered 38 questions to find out I am mostly type 5, or the thinker, with no2 (the helper) and no9 (the peace maker) close behind.

    Which all quickly summarized puts me – I'd say– in the Dr. Spock category.

    If we would want a space colony of 100 people to represent the world’s population accurately, the demographics would look something like this:

    The colony would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada, and 1 from the South Pacific

    51 would be male, 49 would be female

    82 would be non-white

    67 would be non-Christian

    67 would be unable to read

    50 would be malnourished and 1 dying of starvation

    33 would be without access to a safe water supply

    39 would lack access to improved sanitation

    24 would not have any electricity.

    11 would be homosexual

    7 people would have access to the Internet

    1 would have a college education

    1 would have HIV

    2 would be near birth; 1 near death

    5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth; all 5 would be US citizens

    33 would be receiving —and attempting to live on— only 3% of the income of “the village”

    30 would smoke.

    Question: Do you get to smoke in outerspace?
