Would you go to the moon if it was guaranteed that you’d get back?

Polls

26th July 2019

WOULD you like to go on holiday to the moon?

Almost half of British people say they wouldn’t – even if they knew it was safe, shows a new poll by YouGov. Just 43% of people said they would go even if they knew they would definitely return safely.

The most common reason people gave for not wanting to take a trip into space was they just weren’t that interested.

Others said that they were worried there wouldn’t be much to do on the moon or that they had better things to do on Earth! How about you?

Why not?

Of course I would like to go to the moon! It would be such a thrilling adventure!

marla_cat · 2 years ago

How would you really know that something wouldn't go wrong. I'd be too scared to do it because I might make a mistake or something

I'd love to go to the moon!! It would be so much fun just bouncing around all day!!

I wouldn't want to go because I'm not keen on spacey stuff. Also hygiene in spaceships are really disgusting. If those problems are sorted out then I wouldn't mind.

I would definitely not as it will never be 100% guaranteed. I may go there using VR goggles instead.

To far journey

puppy2143 · 2 years ago

NO! I would be scared to death!

piggy0101 · 2 years ago

I would want to go to the moon because only highly trained astronauts get to experience space, and I think the public should be able to experience it as well.

wightbike · 2 years ago

If I was definetly guarented to get back I would go but a holiday should be relaxing but getting there is not.

ali2009 · 2 years ago

I would LOVE to go to the moon. This is because I really want to see a space station and find the truth if the moon is made of cheese

iswizz10 · 2 years ago

It would be so much fun! And knowing it would be a safe journey there and back also makes me want to visit the moon even more!! Although I would miss my family.

teamgorbo1 · 2 years ago

I would love to go to the moon. It would be so interesting and different. I don't think I would ever get bored of zero gravity!

unicorn196 · 2 years ago

Of course! I would love to! These are the three people who inspired me: Neil Armstrong,Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.

thehkh · 1 year ago

If it was safe and affordable I'd definitely go!!!

kkdude9 · 1 year ago

I would definitely go to the moon as it would be an amazing experience and really interesting to be on another planet. It would be amazing especially if you could definitely get back.

pheebz10 · 1 year ago

No because it requires a lot of physical training and learning how to fly to the moon. It also must get quite lonely up there which would be very sad.

molly67 · 1 year ago

I would , but I would pee myself CAUSE ITS SO HIGHHHHHHH.

oceangirl · 1 year ago

I would if it was guaranteed that I would get back

emeve · 1 year ago

I would really want to go to the moon but I'd be kind of scared because I've never done anything like that before! I'd ONLY do it if I would definitely come back!

unicornca · 1 year ago

I don't really know actually

cookie2121 · 1 year ago

I would love to but launching a rocket is so terrible for the planet. I believe strongly in climate change and even though it would be a dream come true for me, it would be a nightmare for earth.

cookie2121 · 1 year ago

What's more important? My dream come true or a difference to 7.5 billion lives.

[email protected] · 1 year ago

I don't want to go because I'd have no idea if I'd come back .You never know!

[email protected] · 1 year ago

I might v

[email protected] · 1 year ago

I'll feel sick

[email protected] · 1 year ago

NO WAY

i.q.t.pup · 1 year ago

Go to the moon I really do not think so. Maybe because you may get sick and catch a disease or you could find it weird living in a space shuttle on the moon where you have no idea about what’s going to happen

ik2010 · 1 year ago

what an experience

newspaper8 · 1 year ago

I want to go on the moon

hobbes123 · 1 year ago

Obviously!! Who wouldn't?

hobbes123 · 1 year ago

Though there might not be much to do:(

ilikenuts · 1 year ago

I would definitely go to the moon, it would be so cool and fun! You'll also learn a lot too. Plus, it's we'll get back to earth so it's safe too.

crystalx27 · 1 year ago

The moon would be awesome! Especially if we knew we would come back safely!

ameliau · 1 year ago

I don't think I would like to go the Moon because I am not really a fan of rocket ships. #nothanks!

rights123 · 1 year ago

I really wanna explore the moon

rights123 · 1 year ago

I 💗 moon.

rights123 · 1 year ago

I really wanna go to the moon. #yesplease

lol123 · 1 year ago

The one reason I would never go to the moon is because I won’t have a 100% chance of returning safely

jessie2008 · 1 year ago

i'd love to go to the moon

shreddeddo · 1 year ago

@unipie some people ( like me) wouldn't be bothered to take the journey and would probably feel sick under the fact of no gravity. Also, there is no entertainment unless you bring something with you on the rocketship. Also it would be bad for the environment. Even if it was guaranteed that you'd get back some people would still feel scared.

rubix123 · 1 year ago

why not, the view would be fantastic

omangion · 1 year ago

It would be a very good experience!

lordsh1p24 · 1 year ago

I would love to just float around! (Anyone else or is it just me?!) 😆

gwenrat · 1 year ago

No because it’s bad for the environment and we’d just be putting more pollution into our atmosphere.

catheaven · 1 year ago

It sounds COOL 😎 to go to the moon but I would still be a bit nervous

catheaven · 1 year ago

I agree with shreddedo

catheaven · 1 year ago

The biggest risk of all is taking no risks, so of course I would want to go!

catnat · 1 year ago

5honypony · 1 year ago

vvvv · 1 year ago

IF IT WAS 100% GUARANTEED! Probably unlikely to happen though. I put yes, though I currently don't want to die, so no thanks!!!

awhitebus · 1 year ago
