600 million years until the sun bloats over the Earth, but by then we've already transcended mulitple universes.
If it is difficult and time consuming it is not worth doing.We could send people to Mars today. We literally have the technology
It might maybe take us 50 years to be able to fart around in Jupiter
There is plenty of old tech that can be used for electricity. Just because some have found it less profitable to provide alternatives does not mean they do not exist.After the incoming civilizational collapse there will be no more easily accessible fossil fuels to jump start another industrial evolution, it was a one time offer and thankfully humanity proved itself unworthy of spreading to the stars. Soon mankind will finally be at peace again where it belong, travesting the steppe on horseback.

Or it might keep us all here for eternity because it loves us that much.Old man who made ground-breaking scientific achievement states mankind incapable of ground-breaking scientific achievement.
True general AI is not very far away. We might be another 150 years away from an AI that is capable of truly thinking for itself, without the biological limitations of the human mind. FTL might be incredibly simple to do, but we simply haven't had the "aha" moment yet. An AI that can do 74,000 years worth of human thought in a minute would be able to solve that, climate change, terraforming, gravity, etc, etc.
Or it just might accelerate hot-house Earth in order to kill off all the pesky monkeys that keep fiddling with its off switch.
Studies, as I recall, have shown that lower gravity doesn't have such a crippling effect. Microgravity is the problem rather than low gravity. As long as there's a sufficient force down, so to speak, adaptive issues will be insignificant.never mind the crippling effect of lesser gravity on human bone and muscle
Or because it hates us.Or it might keep us all here for eternity because it loves us that much.
I picture the elite looking down from their Super Orion at the peasants left on a dying world and laughing about how the peasants obviously don't know how to safely view a nuclear explosion.Two Words: Orion Drive.
Take a giant steel plate, put the spaceship on one side of it, then launch a succession of nukes at it and let them kick the spaceship forward. it does leave the problem of how to slow the damn thing down when you get where you want to go. that and those treaties saying no putting nuclear weapons in space.
The moon has Energy resources capable of powering the earth for several centuriesIf it is difficult and time consuming it is not worth doing.
It is why nobody bothered to go to the moon after America showed off their accomplishment. Why else would no other nation even attempt the trip within the last half century?
Lemme get this out of the way up-front - I, Mother was not an optimistic movie.I think this dude is wrong, as you could just send human embryos and robots to grow them, though we don't currently have the tech to do that.
With our current tech we could send a probe that would get to an exoplanet in a century or so.
I hope they name the least attractive cesspool in the future Imperium of Man after him.I'm not saying he's wrong, but if he is, I hope they name the first extra-planetary colony after this dude as a 'Fuck You'.
I'm waiting for some rabid SJW to unironically start wailing that space travel is a projection of white supremacist force, and we should actually, collectively, die as a species, rather than let white people off the planet.So, we'll never colonize another planet because HOW DARE YOU.
In the past 150 years mankind has achieved all sorts of "impossible" shit.Seems very short-sighted to me.
100 years ago no one could have conceived an iphone, we can't conceive what we might have in another 100 years, I wouldn't write anything off.
Here's hoping that the conduct between nations towards harvesting those resources is as honorable as the original race.The moon has Energy resources capable of powering the earth for several centuries
We have only just now had a really good reason to go there
