Brrr! Or “Would you go to a new colony world?”

The other day I asked someone “If space colonization were possible and you had the opportunity to pioneer a new planet, would you go?”

I had reason to think of this again today. When I went to bed, it was warm, in the 70’s. I woke up freezing.
Not that it was freezing actually but I was shivering, even curled into a ball.

I have my lanterns lit in an effort to take a bit of the chill off.

I forget, conveniently I suppose, that if I were to move to a new world, it wouldn’t be all ‘Stargate Atlantis’, with usable technology and plenty of power.
It would be waking up to a non-preferable temperature, outhouses of some sort, probably boring and often cold food, and limited communication.

  1. I’d be willing to suffer for such an incredible novelty. You asked me the other day if I’d be willing to go to Mars or something if I knew I’d never make it back alive. Yes, I would!

  3. yup. But even in that series they had quite a bit of technology with them. They weren’t freezing or sweltering or fighting small buzzing biting insects.
