    If they asked for volunteers to go, on a one way space trip to a new planet, would you volunteer?

    To reach another planet, it would take so long that families may be sent, so that, even though the parents may die of old age, the children or grandchildren could reach and populate the new planet.

    Yes.  With what we're doing to this planet, humanity will need to eventually move to another planet in order to survive.

    If my husband agreed to it, I'd be the first one on the ship with reading material in hand.

    No. I just think we should send everyone else to another planet to start over. Makes kicking back and relaxing a little bit easier with all the room we just saved ourselves instead of having to forge civilization on a new virgin world. I mean, come on, that sounds really hard.

    No because they asked me to volunteer so my time is not theres for ever. A one way space tirp does not sound like fun, they may not know what to expect when they get there and there may be no air. ( lol) so this one way trip is a no volunteer for me, good luck on your tirp

    Absolutely! It'd be such a revolutionary journey. Where would we be if nobody wanted to sail with Columbus for a 'alleged' trade route? Plus what FitnezzJim said.

    YES! What an adventure.  Even if such planet might not be habitable, just to see the Universe from close up is worth to die for.

    Can I go alone please?  At least we will not pollute that planet other than a single landing module and one set of human bones - yet.
