I don't know. Hopefully not, people are like fly's they breed quickly so I wouldn't want more fly's on different planets.
spread my people and legs.. hurr..hurr also I think with some modern equipment we could "handle" it better.
also Lets domintate the galaxy!!



All I got out of that was alien breeding. I'm in.

I believe [<yes, opinion] there are lots of earth-like planets out there, that are in the optimum distance from their star to provide life. However, if it already takes humans an estimated 2 years just to get to Mars (not guaranteed to be alive), then I highly doubt it would be viable to visit an earth-like planet outside of this solar system within one's own lifetime. It would be cool though.

It's still a long way off but living on Mars is more realistic than anything else. We can get there, and the technologies to stay there long term are within our sight. I don't expect to see it in my lifetime though. I doubt it's worth it to actually get regular people living there. You would still need Earth to support Mars anyway.


To get to Mars takes how long again?


From Google: According to NASA, a vessel with humans on it would take roughly six months to travel to Mars and another six months to travel back from Mars. In addition, astronauts would have to stay 18-20 months on Mars before the planets re-align for a return trip. In all, the mission would take roughly 2 1/2 years.

I agree. Instead of making Earth a better place, they just wash their hands.
well washing hands can be a life saver..
what big bang are you talking about?..
and who said that planets would explode when they have "expired"?
some would say the gravity becomes too strong for itself to handle being crushed by it that makes a "black hole?" (or atleast what they would see from the skies, its still unclear what its made of or what it are? or am I just not updated on that area?)




They were just some examples of what could happen without our doing, like she said, and I don't believe in them so I have no reason to think that way. The "washing hands" part means that they are destroying this planet and once the Earth can't no more with all our wars and contamination, they will wash their hands and migrate to another place instead of trying to save this planet. (by "they" I don't mean her or you, I'm generally speaking ).

This kind of thinking is flawed. Homelessness, general poverty, animal welfare, the global economy, scientific research, engineering projects, warfare---exploring space is just one more thing competing for funding and the attention of the general public. Throwing money at things doesn't necessarily fix them. Exploring the possibility of settling on another planet is both exciting and necessary. Inevitably, nearly every post or article about scientific endeavors is met with at least one post like yours, where the implication is that made that we need to solve more "practical" problems before doing something more fancy. But there have always been poor people and economic inequality is likely just something humanity will always be burdened with. Pushing our species forward is important, and may eventually provide lasting solutions to more mundane problems.

I don't know, this is only true in science fiction. To travel from Earth to Pluto at hypersonic speed would take 90 years. Even longer if you try to travel outside the solar system. There is no vehicle on Earth that can travel as fast as lightning (which is half the speed of light).

That is that, this is this.

And you still did not give a measly dollar to the poor guy down the block.

You could have done it already. Smh
