Naked Colony is Hot

Space colonization

The scientist Paul Davies also supports the view that if a planetary catastrophe threatens the survival of the human species on Earth, a self-sufficient colony could “reverse-colonize” the Earth and restore human civilization.

The author and journalist William E. Burrows and the biochemist Robert Shapiro proposed a private project, the Alliance to Rescue Civilization, with the goal of establishing an off-Earth backup of human civilization.

  1. I must agree that our best option is to create a self-sustaining colony. Terraforming either Venus or Mars would likely take massive resources, something which we may not be able to get. We could build sperm/egg banks in space and set it so that like in the space odyssey manga, robots would just recreate humans. Same thing as the plot from Megaman Legends 2.

  2. dome: heheh, maybe its the best but who will make it works ? Just like antigravity engines (but i think they exist, even for more than 50 years).
