    Sorry that I am so late in discovering this thread but I can remember watching the astronauts walking on the Moon and there are still no places to live up there let anhy other planet! Jeff and Elan better hurry if they expect to take residence on another planet.

    Personally, I think that it is essential for the long-term survival of our species that we get off this planet.
    Do you think the long term survival of our species is important? If so, why?

    Maybe the limited survival of our species is essential for the long-term survival of our planet.

    But you pose a great question. If we go the way of the dodo bird, who cares?

    I’m reading “life 3.0: being human in the age of artificial intelligence”. Which addresses this very question in great depth.

    Personally I assume that the long term survival of our species is probably a bad thing for the planet at large. The sooner we're gone the better for everything else.
