A group of advanced Concepts Team scientists engaged in research within the framework of the European space Agency, at the tenth annual Global contest for trajectory optimization (GOTC X) demonstrated their vision of space colonization by mankind. They showed how people will leave the Earth and begin to conquer the milky Way.
"In about ten thousand years from now, humanity will reset the count of years to zero. Year 0 will be the year when humanity decides that it is time to boldly go to conquer the galaxy and populate other star systems. 100,000 stellar systems in the galaxy have been identified as suitable for colonization. But keep in mind that even at the time of "year zero," though technology and knowledge have advanced significantly, we are still subject to the tyranny of inertia and are still far from almost instantaneous space travel, intricately depicted in science fiction," says the description of THE GOTC X contest.
The contestants had to demonstrate the most effective way to colonize as many star systems of our galaxy as possible. The video shows how people will leave the Solar system, marked with a yellow circle, and go to populate the planet after the planet. The blue and green stripes are the initial "routes" of humanity from Earth, while the red ones show missions from other star systems.
