So this little discussion came a few years back whilst we were watching Close Encounters . I just happened to mention at the end that if it was me I'd have to go . The wife was taken aback saying you would leave me and your family never knowing if you might return. Yup sorry but I'd just have to witness it and the thought of traveling beyond our solar system and marveling in the universe first hand would be to big a draw for me. I remember it turning a little ugly and selfish was mentioned at one point, how could you leave behind your loved ones etc. As hard as it would be though it would be something I couldn't resist , as I said at the time " sorry I'd do it in a heartbeat....bye " maybe should of worded it better , so how about you lot what would you do?
