    It is earth like, and reachable in a reasonable time, with new space ship design, only (basic) tools and equiptment can be transported with you,

    Everyone note: physics lab equipment doesn't count as basic tools and equipment.

    Or does it?

    Like my wife says: If they can put a man on the moon, why can't they put all of them on the moon?

    As to the question, I would go for the ride, not for the destination.
