A New Home

A space-faring race with a huge population has to move out. But where would they go? Fledgling societies like our own might choose a nearby planet to colonize, or they might build space stations. Would people tweak their genes and adapt to the environment, or would they terraform the landscape? These decisions could be the next steps to colonizing other worlds. But what might aliens decide to do? If they were gas-like beings on a hot jupiter, any rocky planets nearby would not be suitable for them. They might decide to either build space stations or decide to travel into other solar systems like their own. Beings on cold, small planets would look outward, or might decide to colonize frozen parts of planets in their own solar system. These might be slightly warmer, but still adaptable conditions. Our universe has many diverse landscapes to choose from and change.
