When Can We Build a Billion-Floor Skyscraper?

3016 ratings | 231831 views
The tallest skyscraper in the world, Burj Khalifa, is in the United Arab Emirates. Other skyscrapers don’t seem much taller than trees when you look down from the top of it. But what if we built one even taller than that? What if we built... a billion-floor-skyscraper? Is that even possible? Let's figure out!

It means that 26 million people, which is approximately the population of Scandinavia, can fit into 1 square mile. - According to UNESCO, each person needs to have at least 322 square feet of personal space to feel comfortable. - First of all, such a skyscraper would be so heavy that its bottom part wouldn't be able to withstand the pressure and would collapse, bringing the whole construction down. - The next issue would be winds that reach very high speeds at a height of 6 miles. In fact, most atmospheric jet streams move at a constant speed of more than 57 miles per hour. - Another huge problem would be elevators, because surely you wouldn't want to use stairs to climb to your apartment situated on the 1,235,677th floor? - Broken satellite pieces, damaged spaceships, and other space trash can seriously damage our skyscraper. - As you know, the incredible Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is the tallest building in the world. The height of the building is a staggering 2,717 ft, which is two times taller than the Empire State Building, and almost three times taller than the Eiffel Tower. - Rising from the desert of Saudi Arabia is Jeddah Tower. When finished, it will be a magnificent 3,281-feet-tall construction with an observatory on the 157th floor!

Lol even if you used the Burj Khalifa elevators to get from the 1st floor to the 1,000,000,000th floor on the hypothetical skyscraper it would still take you around 15 years.

We can't build it ever even in future because we don't have enough metals, cements, glass and even food for that project.Also our planet's electricity is not enough to power those electronics and lights (Maybe we need a nonillion electricity to use per day!!).Another one is that the project was too crazy!, How can we survive natural disasters? The best place to build the skyscraper is in a large planet that is habitable to us. Lastly, if we have unlimited materials, we can build it today.The most important is that the most top floor is too risky, we can't breathe in Vacuum. I hope you learned something to my opinion.
