Seven. Billion. People.

It's predicted that by late 2011 or mid 2012 the world's population will hit seven billion. That's a lot of peeps.

But just how many is so many? From National Geographic, Nigel Holmes imagines how much space we would need to host a world party for 7 billion people in 2011. Surprisingly, not that much.

Despite the belief by some that with conservation and the right social programs, there's hope yet, Nigel might want to consider handing out a few billion condoms to avoid a post-party baby-boom. Just to be safe.
