We're gonna have to do it at some point if we're going to continue to live as a species, and I could always use a change of scenery, so I'd definitely sign up to get off this rock and pave the way for continued living of our species for centuries to come.

No.
So many things could go wrong and I don't want to be stuck in an enclosed space capsule with five or six other strangers.

Yes, without a doubt and regardless of my current living situation. I'm going.

You'd be no closer than you already are. The sun is practically our neighbor here on Earth

I will keep my bones and my air, thank you.

NO! Sorry but humanity has not been very good custodians of the planet we have so I would rather not help humanity to rape yet another planet. Also my family has a very long and sordid history of mental illness and I'd rather not spread that sh%* to the stars.

Oh hell yes. If some of the more "ambitious" Mars projects were more realistic and viable I'd be signing up already.

absolutely yes, that would be incredible. Even more so if the politics amongst the 100 were sound. getting away from this planet to start a more prosperous civilisation on another would be hugely fulfilling in many ways.

Hmm, I really don't think I would.

Tons of hard work
Little to no human-friendly infrastructure in place
Deadly environmental hazards
No connection to culture aside from what is developed by the 100

All for what? To set foot on another world and yell "First!" like an interstellar YouTube comments section?

I'll leave the first steps to other, more intrepid souls!

But if I could assist from Earth somehow - perhaps as a part of a ground team - then I probably would.

I've read about it in sci-fi and it sounds exciting. However reality won't be like that. Most likely we'd have to become ship bound for some generations before we get to another habitable planet. I'm not spending the rest of my life stuck in the confides of metal with people I'm not sure I'll like. After doing what probes they can then we'd still be guinea pigs for centuries before we have what we'd consider to be a civilisation. I think I have enough to deal with allergies as it is. I don't want to be getting new possibly fatal horrific illnesses or being attacked by flora and fauna. What would be our impact on the local denizens? The venture could succeed or it could fail. That civilisation could go through wars and end up just in the same position as we are now, wondering what it's like colonising another world, repeat>>>

At present we're not managing the world we live in very well. Population pressure hasn't got us clambering to spaceships either. My generation and the younger ones now will be too old dead and gone before this happens.
