It's strange to think that if humanity is able to leave our solar system and find a new sustainable planet before the sun destroys Earth, our species could potentially survive for trillions more years. We could multiply across planets and maybe even galaxies. The only thing holding us back is Earth, amirite?

You're glad that you will be dead by the time the sun expands and will fry everything on Earth, amirite?... by the time the sun expands and will fry everything on Earth, amirite?http://amirite.net/348695/

The voters have decided that Galileo is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

I have complete confidence that mankind will destroy Earth before the sun does. I mean, really, are we gonna let that flaming ball of gas have the satisfaction of destroying everything? No! We're gonna blow it all up bigger and badder than the sun ever could so it knows it's place.

We're holding ourselves back. Earth is nothing but good to us.

I could've worded it better. I meant that Earth's inevitable death could become a problem if we aren't able to leave before the final hundred or so years. Once we find a way to leave Earth and our solar system, nothing is stopping us from spreading to hundreds of planets. As long as we're on Earth, our days are numbered.

Until 100 trillion years from now when our universe grows cold, dark, and enters the degenerate era, leaving those billions of people to slowly freeze to death...

Also the inevitable nuclear self-destruction may be a minor issue too. Just saying.

99% of all the species in the history of ever walking the earth have gone extinct. The dinosaurs lived for hundreds of millions of years before total global death. And we, the only species ever who have actively done things that destroy the balance of the planet, well aware of what were doing, and who have done that damage in a mere 2000 years (a one hundred and fifty thousandth of the dinosaur era) are really so arrogant as to believe we will survive billions of years when the current rank winner for species survival was less than 100 million? Holy run on sentence batman.

It's how in the book the host the parasites survived travelling from planet to planet

We have 4 billion years until the sun engulfs our planet, so we better advance technology by then!

I feel that if the people on Earth were to move to other planets, or solar systems, it will be the demise of the universe.
People should just stay on this planet, slowly die out, and leave the rest of the universe how it is.

It would be nearly impossible for humans to make a noticeable impact on something as large as the universe.

@anon, a species naturally tries to evade extinction whether they realize it or not. If, for humans, that means we migrate indefinitely, so be it.
