    From adam's personal cargo

    Who gets to go?
    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?

    Amor, stunning to clearly grasp the current state of the world population in such simple terms.

    thank you.
