I know their will be a time when we won’t be able to live on earth as humans anymore but if we can get our astronauts up to space exploring other planets to see if their is existing life on other planets could we very well build colonies their somehow get their faster with some sort of high tech transport if we needed too?

The expansion of the Sun will force us to leave Earth, but this won't happen until billions of years into the future, so by this time, humanity would certainly have the technology to live on other worlds. A significant number of people could probably survive living on Mars right now, but they would need to be shipped supplies from Earth, but as the resources contained in the asteroid belt are recovered in the future, we be able to offset this. However, with planets outside our solar system, the problem is time, as they are very far away, but colonizing is possible is the spaceship the colonizers are taking to some far away planet has enough people on it to avoid inbreeding. Also, alien life probably would be annoyed if we colonize their planets, and may try to destroy us, so we should only colonize planets with no native life.

I think, if we had to leave earth right now, in say the next 20 years, we could build a space craft to get to another planet with enough people to populate it. The biggest issue right now, is everything is really far away. So it takes a really long time to get any where. No one really wants to leave earth if it is going to take 20 years to get some where. But could we do it? I think with current technology we can. So it is definitely possible. It is just a matter of refining our technology and making the travel faster. Or make the travel more comfortable.

 

It might be physically impossible to travel faster than light, meaning it will always take a long time to get where we are going. However, just because something takes a long time, doesn't mean it can't be done.

Yeah, it's much more a problem of money than technology.
