With the development of outer space exploration and development technology, people began to consider the possibility of asteroid mining. However, due to the imbalance of power among countries in the world, this will have a huge impact on global equity. To study the impact of asteroid mining on global equity, first, I built a two-level fuzzy comprehensive evaluation model, selected 14 indicators, and determined the weight of 6 first level indicators using the analytic hierarchy process. Then, I determined the weight of 8 second level indicators using the objective entropy weight method and calculated the membership of each type of country. Then we use time series analysis to predict the degree of membership of different types of countries in the next few years. So as to draw the impact of different indicators on global equity, so as to promote global equity and make asteroid mining truly benefit all mankind.
