Personally I'd like to see us contained to this one petri dish until we show signs of maturing socially and ecologically.

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

The most dangerous threat to our species right now is us.
The sooner we can get some of us off of this rock, and living independently somewhere else, the better chance we have to survive as a whole.

Just build a big enough one of these and we'll make it to Alpha Centauri within a life time.

Good news, then. We're not getting out of the solar systems for a good long while yet.

If we are to leave the solar system, it would have to be as cyborgs. I see a pretty good chance that our history will end right here inside the solar system. I have some confidence of reaching other planets within the solar system. Stars are too far.

Plenty of real estate in this system to keep us going. As the sun balloons the moons of Jupiter and Saturn will be habitable, and we're clever enough to make our own habitats until then.

I'm highly skeptical that we'll leave the solar system. Seems like our best bet at the moment is interplanetary colonization.

Some day, yes. It may take longer than expected. There's a lot we don't know about.
Meanwhile the stuff we do know about, (Dark Matter, Dark Energy, possible other universes) makes us THE most fortunate humans ever.

It's very likely that humanity will be headed for the stars...........

Unfortunately, it will be on top of a slew of 500 MT nuclear warheads going off......................

.....

So, it's a "good news, bad news" sorta thing.....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
