We are living in one of, if not, the most technologically advanced and wealthy ages known to human kind. We have sent man to the moon and it seems that rockets are sent into outer space with the same frequency as commercial flights. In 2016 the tourism industry generated a total global revenue of 8.3 trillion USD. Global military expenditure was at 1.7 trillion USD, while mining contributed over 600 billion USD to the global economy. Robots are now used to perform minimally-invasive surgeries and they have even become restaurant hosts!
