How Innovation Saves Lives

Apperion has created some graphs to display how innovation and inventions can impact us globally saving billions of lives.

To say that we're living in the best of times would be correct if you look at life expectancy globally. In the late 1900's Africa and the former USSR declined sharply in life expectancy but they and every where else has seen an increase with Africa seeing the steepest increase.



FUD with Hurricane IRMA

Hurricanes put in the highest levels of fear, uncertainty, and doubt in people. The media exploits these fears and it is better to be safe than sorry. The problem IMO with Hurricanes are that you never know where in the path it's going to hit, how much damage its going to inflict, and how bad it will be when it gets there. Lets see what happens with Hurricane Irma & Jose.

Why Elon Musk is the Most Valuable Person in the World

If there is a will then there is a way. After spending what seems like countless days reading Tim Urban and Andrew Finns Wait But Whys latest feature on How and Why Spacex Will Colonize Mars detailing with in depth precision everything from how cool it was to go to the Moon in the 60's and how excitement has waned to the most important part of the piece and why Elon Musk is the most valuable person in the world.

We are doomed. Well maybe not us today but humanity in our time here on planet earth will one day succumb to one of four possible doomsday situations. When that time comes if we have colonized and made life on a different planet then we can ensure the survival of our species.

There are people who set out to change the world but can't because of financial constraints. We have to wonder how many other people would be on missions to disrupt the world for the better if their initial successes took off as Musk's had.

Elons mission is a motivator to the entire world. He wants to give us a reason to get up in the morning and to be excited about life. Life is all about being positive and having our sights set on big goals. Saving humanity and guaranteeing our future is just one of the many huge bonuses of what SpaceX is doing and he is so damn passionate about it that he is holding off on going to Mars until he knows that without the slightest bit of uncertainty that SpaceX will carry on with out him in full capacity with people as passionate and strong willed as he.  

We all strive to be great and Musk is our Edison of today. The greatest man to ever live. Thousands of years if not millions the future will look back at this small period of time and talk about the man who saved humanity and ensured it's survival.

A whole new profound respect after reading the Wait But Why Novel on Space X and why it is so damn important.
