>>60409075>We can transport people across the oceans, but people don't tend to want to live on boats for their entire lives.
Space isn't an ocean, this seems to be the source of your misconceptions.
In the real world, as far as current knowledge of physics is concerned, you don't cruise around the galaxy in a matter of months, occassionally stopping off on a planet that looks exactly like Earth except maybe there's some blue fruit on the trees and the qt ayy lmao women have tentacles instead of hair.
Humans will almost certainly never find another biosphere we're as comfortable in as we are on Earth, so if we travelled to another solar system, you'd be looking at either going down to a """"habitable""""" planet where it's either too cold or too hot, the atmosphere is too dense or not dense enough or the microfauna is highly toxic etc etc
Damn right most people would prefer to live on an orbital habitat 90% of the time.
If you're really married to the ocean/ships analogy, imagine if when you went out on your ship, you arrived in Antartica in mid-winter. Would you prefer to stay on your ship, with it's heating, protection from the elements, stores of food, entertainment systems and other comforts until the ice melts and you can go home, or would you immediately jump in a launch and start trying to set up a camp on the mainland while living in a tent at temperatures of -50 degrees?
