at the moment

we would need 30 years of intense expensive research

to develop a interstelar spaceship

that would need about 1000 years to get to a star that might have a planet worth colonizing

and then we would need another 50 years to build the starship

but by 2100 we could build a starship

that would be able to colonize another star

in 1000 years

and we propably could build further starships

every 10 years

do you think its worth it ?

Start reallocating all the money we're wasting on "Climate 'science'"

it might be smart to enable the colonizing ship

to enable its inhabitants to live

in the oort cloud around a star

acctually i belive the solution to the fermi paradox is simple

there are aliens on earth

they are called humans

the biosphere of earth is alien nature

thats why we fit

so i expect every planet in the goldylock zone to be viable for humans

our ancestors made them to be

Yes, but for the next two or three hundred years, we need to get away from our infatuation with people being part of every spacecraft element. 80% of their time in space in spent on the maintenance of their own physiology. We're not ready to go on long voyages yet. That's why we need to spend 200-300 years getting ready. Let robots do the work out there. They're up 24/7 and they work faster and more precisely than humans. Yet the more human we can make them look, the more taxpayers are likely to support big space programs.

i think your wrong

if id want to use space recources to have a bigger villa and a bigger yacht and a faster car and buy myself a more expensive women id agree

no need for humans in space just send robots and get the gold and platinum

but i don t want to get to space for the recources

i want to live there

and my dick is big enough anyway

ok to qualify that

if i live on earth

i don t need a villa a yacht a car and a expensive women

in fact i don t need space recources to live good on earth

the only reason i need space is to live in space

Without humans it ain't colonization.

Com'on people. Colonization? What's up with these imperialistic tendencies? Did not you learn from the anti-colonial movement? Do you really want to exploit other planets? ;)

If humankind is content to stay on this rock forever, time is not with them.
