I'm quite gotten used to such slander from Alan, but for the 
benefit of others: absolutely not. It's a simple consequence 
of physics of space travel.

Which is why space probes have left the solar system, while
suited primates just barely visited the very next gravity well.

So no "A new life awaits you in the off-world colonies! 
A chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!'.
