As a result of a recession, two wars, and national other priorities, unfortunately, NASA found itself in difficult times. Seeking funding from private investors seemed to spawn a new race from venture firms like Space X and Amazon. However, it is space travel that might actually present solutions to our most critical existential threats. The challenge was to create an interactive data story about the long term survival of the human race advocating space colonization as a possible solution.
Utilizing a series of slides and various chart types, the user is taken through time, population growth, overpopulation, and the resulting pollution. Then the user is presented with the advancements of science and how space travel has improved our lives.
