I voted "no" simply because I don't see anybody getting the technology together in my lifetime to do this safely. Then again, I admit I don't know enough about the "Botany Bay" to be enticed by that. If I was 20 years younger and had no kids to put at risk, and I had a little more faith in NASA, then I'd probably consider it. But I really don't see my kids have much of a future on another planet, just now.

Backpacking across India sounds like more fun. Wink

Because. Smile

I really just would not be comfortable with the idea in any context of leaving forever the familiar environs of "home" as it were. I would have made a lousy pioneer.

So, if the technology comes along, you'd go, provided the new planet had curry? Twisted Evil
