  • 1 How to Colonize a New Planet.
  • 2Now that scientists have discovered evidence of thousands of other planets,...
  • 3...the next question is obviously, how can we colonize them?
  • 4Keep these considerations in mind to become a colonial power of galactic proportion.
  • 5You will need: a planet in the Goldilocks zone,...
  • 6...speedy spaceships, outer space fertility,...
  • 7...man - made biospheres and terraforming.
  • 8Step 1: Target a planet in the so-called Goldilocks zone,...
  • 9...close enough to a sun so temperatures are neither too hot nor too cold but just right.
  • 10This ensures that water would be available in liquid form.
  • 11Step 2: Figure out how to get there in this lifetime.
  • 12Most planets are light-years away.
  • 13Circumventing the speed of light would be a good start.
  • 14Step 3: If possible, pick an uninhabited land.
  • 15It's much easier to colonize a new planet without any alien life forms...
  • 16...who could very well outsmart and overpower earthlings.
  • 17Renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking said that alien life is likely.
  • 18Step 4: Protect human fertilization.
  • 19Scientists investigating the feasibility of colonizing Mars...
  • 20...found that high levels of radiation in space would make pregnancy problematic.
  • 21And negative population growth makes a planet pretty hard to colonize.
  • 22Step 5: Build housing:...
  • 23...man - made biospheres that allow people to survive on the new planet...
  • 24...by providing closed ecological systems.
  • 25Step 6: Start terraforming:...
  • 26...changing the new planet's environment so earthlings can live outside their biospheres.
  • 27Then, try not to pollute it so soon!
  • 28Did you know?
  • 29Scientists believe that as many as half the stars in our galaxy...
  • 30...have planets that are two to ten times the size of Earth and may sustain life.
