We do have one major problem for human survival: we have all of our eggs in one basket. It is wise for us to colonize the moon, Mars, or other locations simply so we can 'restock' the Earth should a disaster ever happen. If we believe that humans should survive; it is important for us to get a foothold in space.

!

Right. Too many people live in Fantasyland and don't consider all possibilities in The Real World.


The problem with colonization is that we too often use the paradigm of "Discovering the New World" after 1492-- it was cheap & easy to sail a few thousand miles and The New World had all the food & raw materials easily exploitable. .. A space colony would be long & difficult & expensive to get to. You'd have to bring two of everything with (what if something breaks?) and no easy way to produce food....Ain't gunna be done. We're stuck here.

Both good, thoughtful posts.

Mining could make the difference. Many nations have looked at the possibility of mining the moon for Helium-3. That would be for unlimited energy (if we could ever figure out how to make the reactor): https://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/P..._lunar_surface. The estimated value of Helium-3 is about $3,000,000,000/ton; which some see as a good reason to think moon!

Of course thinking about mining the moon or anyplace else does not make it a reality. But it is hard to say since no nation likes to be outdone. If Russia or China or even India would attempt such a feat; we would want to also go - we do not like to be last or miss out on profit!

If aliens come here and ask for volunteers to go with them, I would be the first to sign up. However, based on what we have learned on earth, I think technologically intelligent life could be exceedingly rare. But before we even get to that point, how earth came about determined if life would exist at all. We think we might have won the galactic life powerball.

Edit: added video

Physicist and author Stephen Webb articulates his view:

You might want to ask what you're volunteering for first.

"Not sure?" LOL.

It's helpful to read a thread before commenting. I had already answered your objection before you raised it.

"Not to mention that is wasn't even needed in the first place and its way WAY bigger than they need."


You could not be more INCORRECT!!!! DIA was built to handle 50 million passengers a year. It now handles 65 million a year, and continues to be one of the busiest and fastest growing airports on Earth. In fact, the growth is so fast, that it is currently starting a Terminal reconfig, and the addition of 30 + new gates.
