    Ummmm…honey, you might want to revise your opinion somewhat.

    Don’t worry. They decoded the broadcasts of Gilligans Island from nearly fifty lightyears away. Then they saw Three’s Company, and they turned around because obviously there’s no intelligent life here.

    You mean the historical documents?

    Put that thought on the back burner.

    The idea of a back up planet is a dream. The nearest one

    they have found that might possibly be habitable is 15+ light years away. It would take 13,117,500 years-give or take a few hundred- to travel that distance at the speed of sound.
    And, we might be able to build ships that will enable a small number of humans who are descended from the original occupants to reach that planet millions of years in the future, assuming anything is going to remain operational that long. Whereupon, if it’s an inhabitable planet, there is a good chance that the inhabitants will blow them out of their sky.
    Or perhaps we will invent warp speed. Granted, it’s science fiction, but so were computers 50 years ago. Maybe we can summon the scientific knowledge and human ingenuity to manage that.
    But, here’s a novel idea. How about we just use about one tenth of the scientific knowledge and human ingenuity that all that getting to a back up planet would require
    to keep from destroying the planet that we already have.

    Don’t get your hopes up. The laws of physics and nature are keeping us right here. And the greed of man is making sure we won’t be here long enough to matter.
