Even this challenging situation would ease
Even after the discovery of a suitable planet the logistic issues and survival of humans or animals on a new terrain is questionable. It is a distant dream to establish human colonies on such far off destinations.
It is easy to conjecture those stories of intergalactic travel in science fictions but in reality it requires immense technological and scientific breakthrough.
Knowledge is power.
Honesty is the best policy.
However, presently, there appears almost nil possibility that the humans will find another planet soon to spoil the same. At the most, a portion of moon can be made habitable by creating artificial atmosphere within a confined space and arranging for other necessaties.
Contrary to the popular beliefs, the global organisations like UNO etc. working for the welfare of the mankind at large are not getting desired success due to selfish attitude of most of the member countries. Perhaps only nature will settle the score. The humans themselves are inviting natural calamities of catastrophic proportions for themselves by their reckless attitude towards natural balance.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
Discovering planets with life is not even the hard part. Every 1 out of 10000 planets is in the habitable region in our galaxy.
But reaching them is another story.
We'll literally take thousands of years to just cross our solar system.
Even with the speed of light, we'll never be able to reach some planets.
Houbles and Keplar telescope are screening the universe for a habitable planet nearby.
But again, finding and reaching a planet are the easiest parts.
The hardest part is, maintaining life there. And making sure we do not exploit the resources there and go on a mass migration again.
Which is impossible for human race .
We have to find ways to grow crops,our livestock,built our skyscrapers, our machinery should sustain,without gasoline.
We can use solar energy, but that would mean that we need to look for Sun-like stars,not Earth like planets.
Now that's a rare combo.
Stars bigger than Sun die quick. Stars smaller than Sun don't produce enough energy.
See, its the least logical approach and possibly the worst escape plan ever proposed.
There are not one but a million assumptions and implications.
The solution is here,on earth.
Try to conserve the present. We might still live away.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
What we need to do is look at population, meaningful use and conservation of resources. Aforestation, preserving rivers and existing green cover. At the most, we can have land reclaimed from the sea and multi-level cities in the near future. Like we see in movies, there would be giant floating decks or ships which can sustain a small community like a neighbourhood. But above all, we need to think of saving the Earth rather than looking for new frontiers to explore.
