Moontanman Posted January 23, 2018 Share Posted January 23, 2018 For the sake of argument let's assume we've found a planet around another star, beautiful planet, perfect for and compatible with earth life.We have a star ship capable of getting 5000 people there along with tools, machines, and technology to build cities. In other words colonise a Terra Nova! Just one bad thing, studies had shown that the perfect Eden like planet would be destroyed rather abruptly by it's star in one million years. Would it be ethical to send people who did not know the time limit to colonise this planet? What about 25,000,000 years? How long is long enough to justify colonizing the planet?
