If you could travel to any planet or moon, which would it be?

    Ever since I was a kid I've wanted to go to Venus. I always imagined it to be a lush rainforest of sweltering heat. Of course now I know that it isn't inhabitable, or so we're told. But given the opportunity, I think I'd enjoy it. After all, I do enjoy being warm

    If it's warmth you want...Venus will definately be the place to go.

    Personally, I like planet Earth. I have not had the chance to travel much lately, and there still so much to see. I am also kind of partial to fresh drinking water and oxygen, so I'll have to pass on any interplanetary excursions for now. :0)

    If they can truly get the energy requirements down then I would like to check out an exo solar planet. Don't care which one. I just want to travel heh.

    If I had a choice then it would be the planet as far away from Earth as possible.

    I'm not very adventurous.  If I had to go somewhere other than Earth I'd choose the moon.  I hear the view of Earth from the moon is beautiful.

    I would love to visit any planet, but especially one with a (friendly) life form totally different from humans I could communicate with and get to know.

    (Different type of beings, but an atmosphere/climate similar to Earth would be good!)

    I like the rings around Saturn. I think it would be cool to see it from the inside out instead of the outside in. I wonder what difference that would make and how the universe looks to any living creatures in Saturn if they exist and can see that far out.

    I've loved the idea of planetary travel since 1955. In first grade, I remember clearly doodling circles with large bumps (mountains) and where the mountains nearly touched, people could reach up and go down to the adjacent planet. Unrealistic, but creative. I longed for that archipelago of worlds where planet hopping was commonplace. I even created a 3D astronomy software package called Stars in the NeighborHood to see if there were any interesting clusters of habitable systems. (www.SpaceSoftware.net)

    Venus? Lovely idea about lush rainforest, but every spacecraft that landed was very quickly made inoperable by the lead-melting heat! Ouch!

    I'd like to check out the newly-discovered planet in the Alpha Centauri system. I still need to write an article on it for my ancientsuns.com website.

    I'd try further exploration of Planet Earth.  Seems the best of the lot from the accounts I've read and documentaries seen on television.  As it is I havn't been to even one hundredth part of this great planet whick, I'm told, is approximately 25,000 miles around the middle. 

    What I particularly like about it is that I won't have to wear a pressurized, deepsea diver's suit to bounce around on its surface.  Neither will I have to remain hundred or possibly hundreds of thousands of miles off of the surface because it is far too hot to get close.   Mind you, we do have a few spots like that.  They called active volcano craters.

    I particularly like the idea of being able to swim in its waters, soak up the sun on its magnificent beaches, and eat its fruit straight off the vine or tree.

    Yes, I think, I'd pick our Mother planet as the place to travel.

    I still would like to travel the earth as this is probably the only planet I will know and have visited in my whole lifetime.Although  I would not rule out  visiting my own asteroid which an astronomer friend promised to name after me.LOL! In my dreams definitely!

    ThompsonPen asks the question, "if you could travel to any planet or moon,which would it be?"
    I don't have a passport, but I can answer this question.   While there are probably millions of planets out there, I'm only going to focus on or own... read more
