Never ... Apr 26, 2018

If we get to colonizing the moon or Mars, then surely our technology will be advanced enough to be able to work with them via remote desktops, no?
(That actually sounds really cool. I like this question )

What language? Apr 26, 2018

Depends on whether we will find Wallace and Gromit there eating cheese, or the hairdressers and telephone sanitisers from Golgafrincham.

I’m no Stephen Hawking but do we really need to go that far? Are we done with planet Earth? There's no way around the fact that flights are bad news for the environment. So, what about flights to the Moon and beyond? Anyway, when that happens I’ll be long gone. Safe travel everyone!

We will probably find aliens writing these quick polls.
So, heavy editing skills and sanity tests will be required.

The first colonizers would be chosen for a number of skills and attributes, including a common language. We find today's astronauts and cosmonauts need to learn either English or Russian as a lingua franca long before launching into space.

Presuming we ever get permissive international law and sufficient technology to consider sufficient manned exploration to consider colonization...

The first colonizers would be chosen for a number of skills and attributes, including a common language. We find today's astronauts and cosmonauts need to learn either English or Russian as a lingua franca long before launching into space.

By the time there is sufficient terraforming for immigration to be enticing, and for costs to be achievable by the common person, there will already be a cadre of multilingual inhabitants ready to translate as necessary.

That said, Teresa Borges asked if we were "done" with Planet Earth. The more salient question is whether our international laws, and the costs of the missions, will limit us forever to unmanned exploration of extraterrestrial bodies.

Only after our pioneers try to build a Tower of Babel there.

As they say, history repeats itself.

Other - translators already on the moon Apr 26, 2018

Colonization has to catch up to us... probably waiting for Tesla... and probably won't get there with it...

English Language Apr 26, 2018

I think that the matter will be like using English language in aviation and aerospace!
Thus, no need for translator!

Space.....the ultimate solution Apr 26, 2018

I really enjoy how whimsical this question is.


I suppose it wouldn't hurt if we sent all developers and users of MT into space indefinitely.
