The exception is that if you're married you can take your wife with you and the kids.

Personally, I would do it in a heartbeat.  I love space, and everything about it.  And if something tragic were to happen.  Than I'd rather die in space, then here on earth.

So what do you guys think.  Is anyone here adventurous enough?

I would go but do you mean to go terraform and colonize a planet or just to go into space?

No.  Just exploring space.  Kind of like StarTrek.

Maybe, but only because anyone who did it would go down in history

are you kidding?  id have my little family on the ship as fast as i could get my stuff together.  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

Well.. I'll consider to be part of 2nd expedition, but not the 1st one.. too many untested technology that may blow itself up in the spaceship.

I chose maybe. I would definitely want to go explore space and new places, but I dont know if i would want to give up the rest of my life to be on a space ship with the same people. I guess it would depend on how long I would be gone.

i am young, i willed to do it, and i dont care too much about family...and i love to explore, especially space...count on me!

Im an evil pinko UN slave liberal commie

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.
