Science has, during the last few decades, presented us with a steadily increasing and apparently endless variety of moral dilemmas and practical threats. A more ambitious target would be to make the world's last unpleasant experience a precisely dateable event some time next century; and from this minimum hedonic baseline, start aiming higher. "Every day, and in every way, I am getting better and better".

With those challenges in mind, ESA researchers said a manned spaceflight would have to be a lofty endeavor to warrant the use of crew hibernation. But many researchers argue that it is too soon, and potentially too dangerous, to tinker with the human genome in a way that is passed down to future generations.

Once upon a time, in the great between-the-wars era of the pulp magazines, almost all genre SF was divided between space opera and dystopian cautionary tales.
