Space colonization is the future because if studies are right, we are going to have to leave the planet soon. Honestly, it could save the human race sooner or later. It is probably a good idea for lots of reasons like saving the human race. There are also lots of resources to use in space, like, “The Solar System alone has, according to different estimates, enough material and energy to support anywhere from several thousand to over a billion times that of the current Earth-based human population (“Reasons” paragraph)”. That is a lot of energy that is not being used. Or maybe there are aliens in our solar system that are using up the energy.
I wonder how they calculate the energy from a place that we don’t live on. A good idea would be to leave our solar system so see what other stuff is outside it. I know right now it probably isn’t ideal because we dont have the technology to do that yet, or maybe we do. Maybe in 20 years we will have the technology to go outside the solar system and find a better way to live.
It is our fault that we made the Earth inhabitable, but there could be a chance to find a better place to live. If we go somewhere bigger than Earth, overpopulation wouldn’t be a problem, which is a good thing. I feel like going to the moon wouldn’t be a good idea, because we need the moon and sun to live on Earth, so I think we should go somewhere like Mars or something. Overall, we don’t have a lot of time and we need to find somewhere habitable in our solar system or outside of it.
