While humans are very creative in living in smaller and smaller spaces with more economical use of resources, the population of the planet earth is greater than 6.8 billion as of the last official estimate compare that to 50 years ago when the population was less than half that. That was approximately the time that mankind originally took a metal coffee can into space to see what they could see. I think they may have relayed these words back to earth (by telegraph or something), “Holy, chinchillas, I think we need a little more technology to make it up here.”
The Transductionist’s Intergalactic Survival Guide is a humorous, quasi-scientific look at building human civilizations in space in five parts: Why we need space, How to settle space, Finding a room in space, Galactic farming practices, and Water, Air, and Other Such Essentials. It is presented with original artwork and an edited collection of essays composed in a similar voice.
