This video examines one of those weird science questions that a lot of people have pondered over the years but no one has ever really answered – What if everyone jumped at once?
Essentially this video explores the impact humanity – all seven billion people living in the world today – could have on Earth. It turns out we’re tiny, even as a collective unit.
In cosmic terms we are able to affect the planet we live on about the same amount as a colony of ants could affect a whole city. It’s imperceptibly small.
The most interesting part of the whole video is the revelation that were we all to live in the same proximity to each other as New York residents the whole population of the world would fit comfortably inside the state of Texas. So let’s not worry about over-crowding for the time being.
