Interesting Facebook Group: "We should leave now"

An interesting group on Facebook, "We should leave now." Here is their description:

"Don't keep all your eggs in one basket"

Throughout the ages of this earth, earth's been hit by devestating impacts from stellar objects (eg, asteroids, comets, etc...) setting life back on earth, killing thousands of individual creatures and causing mass extinctions.

it's only a matter of time until it happens again...

So, just as a precaution, we should fund people like Burt Rutan, who created spaceship one, the first commercially built space craft to enter space. only when we have self sufficient colonies on more than one planet will the human race be safe... and even then...

and this isn't one of those things that'll never happen: in 1994, comet shoemaker-levy colided with jupiter.
