### This is irrelevant. Whatever technology reduces the cost of human
space travel, the same technology also reduces the cost of solid state
creature travel by the same factor, or even higher. Solid state/non
biological beings will always have an economic advantage over humans
in space, an advantage so massive as to preclude meaningful
competition against non-biologicals in terms of the ability to settle

Just as Eugen says, it will be upload, or stay home. At best.
