GeekSpeak – how will we change when we go into space?

What will humans become once we venture out of the earth’s protective environment?

Will humans be carefully chosen for all colonizing missions?  Only very small people, because it saves on food and space?  Only those with little aggression, for obvious reasons?

Will humans be engineered for space colonization?  Will their DNA be changed to protect them from radiation sickness?  Will they be given chloroplasts so they can make their own food?  Will we send people into space as brains in jars?

And how will selection and adaptation work in space?  Will we grow taller on the moon?  Will we adapt to the temperature on Mars or Venus?

Will there be many human species in the future?  One species for every planet we colonize?

Come and discuss our future selves in GeekSpeak.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.
