    Im watching Earth 2 and they slept for 24 years which is quite a bit of time considering they have to go back which is another 24 years when they get back to tell whom ever the news thats 48 years and it seems quite pointless.

    Only way to let the other people know of a successful mission.

    ....what was the point of the mission?
    and why did it take 28 years to get back? is this some crazy 1 to 1 ratio?

    It looks like there's no point in being excited about going into space, but man, I'd love to sleep for that long, I wonder how quickly it'll pass by.

    Man... Now I'm jealous...

    If anyone here is capable of creating a sleeping chamber like the ones they have on the space ships, please contact me. I'd like to take a couple of years off of my life.

    A sci-fi show from the 90's, I think Clancy Brown was in it.

    Earth became uninhabitable, everyone moved to orbital stations, but some children developed some weird disease brought on by the artificial environment, and had to find an Earth-like planet to live on. So the families of those kids pack up and go to this inhabitable planet 20 light years away, and the series is about how they try to build a colony.
