    Would you depart on a journey to colonize a planet even if you would be dead before getting there?

    Would you volunteer to take a decades long voyage on a ship bound for another habitable planet, knowing that it would be your descendants that were the first inhabitants?

    Because it would mean leaving my wife and kids, no.  If they came with me and were willing to, yes.  If I didn't have a wife and kids, yes.

    I would in theory but a lot of factors would have to be taken into consideration. How safe is the new planet. I don't mean the flight but how would life be at the destination. How many would be going. There is here obviously an ethical view, would it be fair to commit our off spring to a certain type of life. We do, to a point already but this would be a lot more permanent.

    I like this question.

    Depends on what I'm riding in.  If we're talking about a space ship that looks like space vehicles of today, then no.  If it looks like a cruise ship, with artificial gravity, then maybe.

    I'm going to guess it'd be hard to keep writing hubs though.
