In this paper, we analyze the impact of asteroid mining on global equity. Specifically, the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and entropy weight method (EWM) are used to calculate the weight, and finally the weight factors are coupled. The TOPSIS model was used to establish a global fairness measurement model, and the model was used to calculate the per relatively equality allocation of weight (PREAW) for 40 countries. To address the question of how asteroid mining affects global equity, a grey prediction model was established. Through the processing of raw data, time series data is generated, and finally differential equations are established to predict future development trends. The asteroid mining factor is introduced into the global fairness measurement model to calculate PREAW, and it is found that the resource requirement (RR) has an important impact on global fairness.
