Would you want to be a space pioneer?
Would you explore the reaches of our galaxy and universe to find other life or habitable planets? In doing so you can never return to Earth. You would most likely die on the ship you were on but your descendants, after hundreds of years of exploration would succeed. Would you take part in this endeavor? If so, why? If not, why?
I would most certainly want to become a space pioneer. This is in respect to the vast reaches of space that have yet to be discovered as of yet. I am currently in school for archaeology and most likely going to be pursuing microbiology, so to do so on an interstellar level would be a dream come true. Of Course, I would first want to terraform a planet, then create a small colony, and eventually venture to other parts of the planet to mine the materials necessary for economic functions on other civilizations we have founded over the next 10,000 years.
I think I would love to be the first in the eventual long line of human ancestors to explore the universe. Even if I didn't step foot on an alien planet I would be thrilled to take part in this search. As one of the first people to leave the planet we would forever be immortalized in history, like Colombus or Magellan.
If I felt that my survival and the survival of my offspring was at stake then yes, I would! Pioneers have forged for new lands since the recording of history. Where would we be without them!
Not for me. I have a huge fear of heights so the thought of climbing at that pace and to those heights would probably cause me to have a heart attack. Sorry! Count me out.

Many scientists believe their is life on other planets. Not on Mars or Venus but in the next Solar System. What do you think and should NASA take this issue seriously?
