Should we build habitats in space?


With the nearest earth like planet light years away, would it make since for humanity to build large self sustaining space habitats near resources in the solar system? What do you think?

    Exactly.

    Just with our growth we are going to need more real estate.

    Uh, I was thinking in terms that I would be easier to build habitats the size cities near earth. I see now that I should have said that. :P

    Actually, I was thinking of building habitats near Earth for growing population due to the fact we have nothing in our technologies that could get us to an Earth-like planet. Will try to edited my question.

    Thanks for your answer!

    We know we have limited resources, and we do not seem to want to slow our population growth.

    I'm sold.

    Hey whonunuwho!

    I was thinking in terms of building habitats near earth that be a place to go for excess population because a voyage to the nearest Earth-like planet would be too far away.

    I have to get better at this.
