Life Beyond Mother Earth

Do you think the Earth will be able to sustain life for the next 1000 years? Atleast 500? A 100? What will humans do beyond those years?

If you are like me, you’d know that there are several futuristic visions of man colonizing the Moon, Mars and several other moons in our solar system. Terra-forming is going to be the only way that we can colonize and live a happy life on another planet/moon, unless ofcourse it’s already has a human friendly natural enviornment, with plentiful water, vegetation & breathable air.

Someday, decades from now, mankind would have established a colony, permanent or otherwise, elsewhere and we’ll stop depending so much on the Earth; the Earth who we have plundered, looted & raped of her wealth. We’ll be able to visit other planets, find out whether there is life out there, travel between worlds in civil spaceships. I’m just sad that I won’t be alive to witness such an existence.

Would you like to be able to live in that time period? To step foot on another planet? Or are you comfortable here on your couch?

  1. For me personally there is not much excitement about living on another planet. It might be fun to visit one, though.

    I think the Earth will be here for sure many years from now, but many of the people won’t. We are moving through a big time of change, where those who do not want to change or evolve will have a hard time surviving.

    Many people still today call for “saving the Earth”. The Earth as I said I have no doubt will still be here and better than ever without us – it is ourselves that we should focus on saving.

    I also don’t think we should be “able” to move to another planet until we know/learn how to manage this one. As you say it has been put through a lot.

    Thanks for the thought provoking post!

  2. At the rate that we’re raping the earth… I don’t believe mankind will be around that much longer. I predict some massive epidemic of sorts, or natural disasters, shortage of drinking water or fuel, or nuclear bombs, etc.

    It cannot go on like this forever.

    Earth will recycle itself and then who knows.

    Sure glad I’m not gonna be around to see it all go down… and I’m not leaving any kids behind to suffer, either!
