I expect that by the time we have the tek to set up a colony we will also be able to modify our jenez to make us able to survive the radiation and wutever other dejenerativ factorz there are. And there will sertainly be well developed virtual reality entertainment systemz to eliminate the boredom.

Which seems to lead to the next logical step: Why go at all, if you can do it all in virtual reality?
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

99.999% of all humans would not volunteer in the first place. But WTF. It only takes a few.
I think we need to build a simulator first, where people can experience the long slow road to misery and death.
We already have that - it's called the GOP. :mrgreen:

Accessible by dirt road with hospital an hour away, and in less time if by helicopter... One would hope that they would wait a few years after the medical emergency occurred, before sending the ambulance - and of course spend a year or two on that dirt road before arriving at the hospital.
