WE MUST EXPAND TO OTHER WORLDS.

If we don't, we'll eventually die by either a natural disaster, population collapse, OR WAR.

The following are some areas of space that we probably want to occupy.

  • Mars, Solar System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    No brainer, really. Within the next few decades, we need to colonize Mars as quickly and intelligently as we can. The long-term survival of humanity is only now taking its first tentative step.
  • Kepler-62f, Kepler-62 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    A super-Earth exoplanet orbiting the star Kepler-62, this potentially habitable planet is 1,207 light years away from Earth. It seems far, but it's very close to us compared to other well-known celestial bodies. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • Kepler-442b, Kepler-442 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    Kepler-442 is a K-type main-sequence star that is 1,206 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra. Kepler-442b is a confirmed exoplanet that is close to Earth in size and is most likely rocky. It orbits within the star's habitable zone. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • Kepler-69c, Kepler-69 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    The outermost of two extrasolar planets of this type identified by NASA's Kepler probe, Kepler-69c is a verified super-Earth planet that is most likely rocky and orbits the Sun-like star Kepler-69. 2,430 light-years separate it from Earth. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • Proxima Centauri B, Proxima Centauri, Milky Way, Laniakea
    The red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, which is the nearest star to the Sun (about 4.2 light years) and a member of the triple star system Alpha Centauri, hosts Proxima Centauri b, also known as Alpha Centauri Cb, an exoplanet that orbits in its habitable zone. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • Kepler-1649c, Kepler-1649 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    The outermost planet in the planetary system, known as Kepler-1649c, is an exoplanet the size of Earth that is most likely rocky and orbits the red dwarf star Kepler-1649 within its habitable zone. It is found in the constellation of Cygnus, 301 light-years from Earth. The gravity of this planet, being very close to Earth's, makes it a better potential choice for colonization.
  • K2-72e, K2-72 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    The outermost of four such planets found in the system by NASA's Kepler spacecraft on its "Second Light" mission, K2-72e is a verified exoplanet that is most likely rocky and orbits within the habitable zone of the red dwarf star K2-72. It is found in the constellation of Aquarius, 217.1 light years from Earth. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • Gliese 667 Cc, Gliese 667C System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    Exoplanet Gliese 667 Cc is located about 23.62 light-years away in the constellation of Scorpius, circling the red dwarf star Gliese 667 C, a component of the Gliese 667 triple star system, in its habitable zone. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could serve as an outpost.
  • Teegarden's Star b, Teegarden's Star, Milky Way, Laniakea
    Exoplanet Teegarden's Star b was discovered circling the M-type red dwarf Teegarden's Star, around 12 light years from our solar system, in its habitable zone. As of April 2020, it shares fourth place with Teegarden's Star c, GJ 1061 c, d, Luyten b, and Tau Ceti e as the nearest potentially habitable exoplanet. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could also be used as an outpost. This planet is a better candidate for colonization since its gravity is very similar to Earth's.
  • TOI-700 d, TOI-700 System, Milky Way, Laniakea
    A nearly Earth-sized exoplanet, TOI 700 d, is likely rocky and orbits the red dwarf TOI 700, the system's outermost planet, in its habitable zone. It is found in the constellation of Dorado, around 101.4 light-years from Earth. Possibly an ideal location for human presence. It could serve as an outpost.

Out of all of the potentially habitable planets listed above, even the most distant one from Earth, being a staggering 2,430 light years away, could be reached in just 10 days, using Warp Drive tech such as the one discussed on our Warp Drive Page.

We'd also like to remind you that these are just some of the planets we should colonize across the galaxy. The colonization of these planets are still just the beginning. Don't forget that we'd need to expand outside of this galaxy eventually.

More DISCOVERIES, more progress

The more humans expand, the more people born. The more humans there are, the more people are working to advance technology and make new scientific breakthroughs, which means that humanity will advance at a much more rapid pace.

Effectively avoiding human extinction

It's a pretty basic notion. If humanity expands to across the Milky Way Galaxy, and eventually outside of the galaxy, extinction of humanity would essentially become an impossibility.

"It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small."
