  • The Democratic governor said future generations will be living "indoors ... or we'll be living on some other planet."

    Living on another world? Cool! I always wanted to know what it felt like to be a early American colonial, helping develop a new world. I'd like to live on the lush, green world with sparse human population. And I want my plot of land to be around 3,000 acres.
  • Meh, I'm not real enthused about jogging for the master race.
  • Humanity will not find a suitable planet or develop and build a proper colony ship before it manages to destroy itself.
  • Call me crazy, but I think it'd be less labor intensive to clean up the Earth than to find another planet and make it habitable.
  • Brown's planet is called Reality. Someday, deniers might actually try to land on it.
  • Mrbogey: Call me crazy, but I think it'd be less labor intensive to clean up the Earth than to find another planet and make it habitable.


    All we need to do is find a way to terraform Mars. Should be pretty simple.
  • So they are going to put all 7 billion of us on one ship and take us there? Sounds crowded.
  • Mrbogey: Call me crazy, but I think it'd be less labor intensive to clean up the Earth than to find another planet and make it habitable.


    I think that was the point he was getting at.

    And either way we will have to colonize other planets eventually or face extinction, but we certainly don't have the technology to do it right just yet.
  • Hahaha the people of New Jersey laugh at you!
  • Kuroshin: Humanity will not find a suitable planet or develop and build a proper colony ship before it manages to destroy itself.


    Pretty much this.
  • Not at the rate the U.S. is going in leading the world in space exploration. Better to focus on this planet

    (I say that knowing Obama wants us to pay passage on other countries space technology instead)
  • people seem to forget he is called moonbeam for a reason

    FTFY

    You must not read any space related news. You should read more...
  • Personally I think that there will be one of many other factors which will cause humanity to get his ass kicked long before any kind of global warming shiat happens. It may not wipe us out but it will sure humble the fu(k out of us.
  • I'd like for Gov. Brown to put down the hash pipe for a few minutes and tell us which Earth-like planet he would recommend.

    Mars doesn't have an iron core. No Van Allen belts for you. The atmosphere is being stripped away by the solar wind faster than it can generate and harsh radiation bakes the surface instead of being deflected.

    We can't even fund fiscally sane healthcare, or stop lobbing rockets at each other and you think we can fund a ship with the matte rials to terraform Mars and get enough people there?

    Cyborgs kicking our asses off the planet and chasing the remainder around the galaxy.

    I think we find a habitable planet in the end though, so we got that going for us.

    You really thought I was being serious? Heh.

    It's far more likely that humanity will never leave this rock as we will most likely end up destroying ourselves. Our rate of technological discovery in the way of space travel and planetary engineering has to outpace the rate at which we are killing each other or the rate at which we are damaging this world. I don't think that's currently the case.

    Oh, a generally hypothetical list of possibly habitable planets (we really have no way to know for sure). And how far away are these new vacation destinations? Inasmuch as we do not have the capability for manned interstellar travel and won't for several hundred years, the point is moot.
