The first humans sent on a voyage to another solar system might be greeted by humans who were sent later on a faster ship, amirite?

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

The generally accepted rule, given current rates of developement, is that you shouldn't set out on a space journey that will take more than 50 years ( unless necessary or it is about 50 lightyears away). Some will leave after you and beat you there.

It wouldn't be a bad thing at all to arrive at a planet that has already been made habitable. It would save a lot of work and a lot of pain. Sure, you miss the glory. But the main point of the trip is survival of the species, not glory.

Cool story, bro

Relatively speaking

And it's Elon Musk smugly welcoming the 500 volunteers he sent on the test flight.

Good point
