If the technology to build a "sleeper ship", ala the S. S. Botany Bay we saw in the Trek ep Space Seed were available, would you leave Earth, to help found a colony elsewhere? Mars, or perhaps, even beyond our solar system? What sort of reasons might induce you to join such an expedition, despite the obvious risks?

I'd be in for that. I've always been travelling, exploring new countries and meeting new people. My wife s the same. I think we'll leave all here and take our three kids to Mars or something. As long as there's some possibility to go back one day if we ever get homesick. Smile

Makes sense. Kind of like the Pilgrims, or the other New World colonies. Daring and curiousity.

It has to be warm and less rain than here though. Plus it preferably needs to be a step forward, like better job or better house. If the surroundings are fabulous that counts as a step forward too. I personally wouldn;t mind living in some dome or community either, but I think the wife goes crazy. Smile

Depends how you look at it. The wife and I backpacked the globe for a year. We only visited warm countries for an entire year by choice since we hated the rain out here. But that doesn't mean it's eazy piezy.Try backpacking two months in poorest part of India and then we talk again. Wink

At this point I'd also look forward to a year of sleep in one of those sleeper chambers to get to Mars for instance. Very Happy

I'd also do a "back to nature": build your own cabin, grow your own food, hunt... stuff like that. I HATE camping, but only because I I hate to spend the short time I have on my vacation on the ground in a tent. If it's a choice of life and I'd never have to work again, I'd do it.

Great. So, you're going to Mars first? Wink

My dream trip would be like they were proposing to do in "Defying Gravity" (if you haven't seen the series, do check it out; it's another awesome 1 season series). In other words: a trip to all the planets in our solar system. I'd go to Mars first, since it's closest, but I wouldn't settle there for ever, but rather stay in the colony there for a few months/a year and then move on to the next planet, until I did them all. Sort of backpacking the solar system.

All scifi movies that visit other planets always focus on Mars (or way beyond that/other galaxies). Defying Gravity was on Venus which looked AWESOME. I'd also love to go to Saturn or Jupiter, but how do you walk on a planet with no surface (since both are gas planets).

NASA was already looking into it back in 1996 (diametric drive) for space propulsion.

... Negative mass.

Maybe it will help you walk (float) through the cloud tops of Jupiter! Wink

P.S. Did you vote in the poll?

There are 2 votes in the poll and two people posting here. What do you think? Wink

Given that the poll is nearly a year old, I would have no way of knowing.
