Can space impact our daily routine for the better?
Did you know that our bodies contain an elaborate mechanism for telling the time? This device, which tracks regular rhythmic cycles of 24 hours, one week, one month, and one year, is called the biological clock and is found in a diverse variety of living things—not only mammals like us but even some bacteria. It is said to be one of the earliest functions acquired 3.8 billion years ago when life first appeared on Earth.

How can technology change humanity?
French philosopher Henri Bergson believed that tools make humans unique in the animal kingdom. He argued that we are the only species to create useful implements for a whole variety of purposes, and have done so since the beginning of time. In prehistoric ages, we shaved sticks to start fires. Today, we use voice activation to turn on lights. We forge tools to encourage our lifestyle to evolve and, in many ways, these instruments make humans human.

Can we weave together 3.8 billion years of evolution?
Roughly 94.77 million tons of primary fibres are produced around the world every single year. This is the highest figure in history and the volume is only increasing every year – it is predicted that the amount of natural resources used for clothing in 2050 is expected to be three times that used in 2000.

Can humanity survive without producing waste?
The United Nations expects the global population to reach 9.8 billion by 2050. Humanity also faces the terrifying prospect of running out of key resources over the next few decades. The World Wildlife Foundation has warned that human consumption so far outpaces our planet’s ability to renew resources that we would need more than two Earths to sustain consumption at the level it is predicted to reach by 2030.
