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?
