When with humanity start colonizing the galaxy?
If we wish to continue our existence into the indefinite future, colonizing other planets other than Earth must be one of the future steps taken by humanity.
Will it be Mars?
What about the moon?
I watched an educational video today mapping out how it is technically very possible for us to currently start building a colony on the moon. But of course as cool as it seems, it requires a huge amount of capital and a lot of extensive planning to do. And also a bit impractical to be planning right now as there are other “more” important Earth issues to solve first.
Still, it’s quite cool to think we might be able to colonize the moon in my generation.
