Astrophysicists have predicted three paths of human development A group of astrophysicists led by American Adam Frank built a model of the development of activitatii, in which they identified three possible ways of development of mankind, writes the magazine The Atlantic. MOSCOW, 2 Jun — RIA Novosti. In the model astrophysicists civilization used resources for evolution and expansion. The more resources extracted from the bowels of the planet, the wider population, however, proportionately deteriorate the environmental conditions. In the end, the environment must go across the boundary when the population growth becomes unstable, and it will face the threat of extinction.
