Stephen Hawking says space is our destiny — and we need to get going on colonizing it, lest we blow up the Earth first!
I predict the vanguard of space colonizers will be liberals upset about the next Republican presidential victory and deciding to move to
Canada Mars in protest. Oh wait, I take that back… those folks are all talk, aren’t they? Nevermind. (And besides, do we really want a bunch of Godless hippies as the sole survivors of the human race after Chimpy W. Hitler’s Evil Hegemonic Halliburtonization of Mother Earth finally succeeds in destroying the planet? I think not.) We’d better find some other, better colonizers… :)
