The Prompt



I am looking for a fictional story set in the future that explains "Why Mankind Left Earth".

I want to hear a story set in the future that addresses the question Why Mankind Left Earth? Not all of mankind needs to have left earth, it could be a whole species migration, or a small group that strike out, or anything in between. How many people have left earth and where they go/have gone is up to you. You could chose to follow that journey or set your story at some point after, but you don't need to directly address why in the body of your story and the prompt could be met with a single sentence that explains what motivated them, as long as there is a reason in there somewhere. The people who have left must have left permanently, although this doesn't have to rule out return visits. I would like a fictional story included a reason that mankind has left earth. The perspective you chose and the story you tell is entirely up to you, this could be the focus of your story, or you could weave it into the background, you know I love prompt pushing interpretation, so let your imagination run wild!

Oh my, this title alone is so intriguing! We had a previous round looking at gender but it was a bit controversial for a lot of people, so this is very much an entry I can't wait to get into!

A nice fantasy. Realistically this will hardly ever happen. Most likely in a couple of hundred years homo sapiens the way they exist today would cease to exist. It will be something different - a homo-Deus - a combination of the improved human brain and improved replaceable inorganic organs.

And in a thousand years ... Jes Louise... our descendants will be all over the friendly universe. Maybe they will even regulate the thermonuclear reaction in the Sun and stop it from expanding.

That is if within the next generation we won't blow ourself up. )))

Yep, fantasy it is! Thanks for stopping by @mgaft1!

Quite possible to stop the expansion. After all, the expansion is the result of the sun running out of Hydrogen atoms to continue with the fusion process. If we can figure out ways to inject Hydrogen atoms then that should do the trick. We'll figure that out. 4 billion years is a long time.. 😊
