Suppose we allowed each person 1000m^3 of living space in a large building, with ceiling height 3 m. To the nearest order of magnitude, how many 1000m high buildings would have to be built to house the entire population of 8.5 x 10^14 people on the energylimited Earth, if each building's base were 100km on a side
