Random Topic of the Week 03 April 2016 (Great Race Lap 10)

Postby HyruleBalverine » Mon Apr 04, 2016 9:52 pm

So I watched the Martian this weekend with my girlfriend and the movie (along with a recent episode of The Simpsons) got me to thinking...


If you could go on a one way trip to try and colonize Mars or another planet/moon, would you go? Personally, I'd love to do so. Not just for the experience of travelling to another planet, but, admittedly, so that I would appear in the history books (regardless of success or failure) as having done something that my family could be proud of me for doing.

This week's question is a doozie of a question as it is a question that takes a bit of deep thought and there are reasons why I would want to go but not want to go at the same time. Reasons for wanting to go and not wanting to go would be as follows:-

Wating to Go:
  • Would be an accomplishment to make my family proud of me
  • Would be a great chance to be the first or one of the first people to do something
  • Would be my only chance in my lifetime to ever be able to go into space

Wanting to Stay:
  • Making progress in life after completing my course
  • Would miss my family and friends (real life and gaming friends)
  • Knowing that I would probably not pass the Physical excaminations that would be required
  • I want to see more places on Earth before doing something that would be a one way trip
  • I would prefer to immigrate to another country knowing I could stay in contact with my family

After reading these reasons, I think I would not want to be a participant in a one way trip to settle a new planet/moon.

Easy, bags are packed, send me to Space!

Since you stated I am settling a new planet, I would have to assume I have everything necessary to establish a basic settlement. How long that settlement last's with Aliens watching over me is another story. However so long as I've brought all the people and essentials to make a base camp and start a new settlement then I'm in.

Granted I could lose all my supplies in transit and have so many other potential catastrophic events but as long as I left prepared I could make the decision to leave. I'm not passing an opportunity to go to space, especially a one way trip. I think if I were out there and knew I was coming back to Earth that may be the hardest part, leaving all those unexplored mysteries untapped.

If I decided to stay behind, the only thing on my mind would be when do I get to leave and go live there? Provided the colonizing was successful, I'm not going if something happened to all of the original colony lol. I'll let that play out for awhile.
