    you could be asked to move on to space by a minimal cost of 2000 bucks for evrey six months,which gives you:

    habitat relocation and placement.

    required food

    water

    entertainment(overall)

    if there's a lack of income,an obligatory 6 hour shift job to pay extra expenses(can choose from University selected career if aplicable to a regular job placement career)

    International Colony social security number and citizenship

    access to research and development enrichment library for product development and aplication in case of University seleceted career

    i think that should be enough....

    No, because you would die immediately.

    Contrary to the generic sci-fi animes with space colonization depicted as successful, I believe living in space will end up being more like the movie Pandorum.

    So no.

    Are you thinking that we're talking about living in an area of the heavens with no matter or energy what-so-ever?

    I think the better question would be "Would you live on another inhabitable planet if one were discovered" or something to that affect rather than just would you live in space.

    It would depend on a lot of factors but as a general answer... Yes.


    EDIT: Unless you literally meant like living on a Space ship in space. Then probably no because without the advantage that a planet has to be able to push things out of it's orbit and burn up small debris before it hits the planet, living in a space ship seems too risky.

    Just a little more info..

    Is there a Home Owners Association fee?

    How are the schools?

    Is there a constant struggle against the Zerg and masses of Zerglings running about?

    Do I have to wear a Red shirt when going on exploration missions?

    Do I get my own andriod? (Not the OS)

    Can I speak like Shatner?

    Can we place Justin Bieber under the shuttle before taking off to this new colony?

    I don't understand option two. What is a religion marker? And is this a thread about religion or a thread about living in space? I don't understand your train of thought with option two.

    There is an edit button below your existing posts for a reason. It allows you to add and take away stuff from the first post, and all your posts afterwards.
