How many of us can stay on you and how much you can hold?

I can hold more than 12 billion but according to the United Nations, our population is expected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050 and 11.2 billion by 2100. And that, many scientists believe, is the maximum carrying capacity of the earth. The issue isn't the number of people.

Do you know about your lifespan?

I could continue to host life for at least another 1.75 billion years, as long as nuclear holocaust, an errant asteroid or some other disaster doesn't intervenes. But even without such dramatic doomsday scenarios, astronomical forces will eventually render the planet uninhabitable.
