When will Humans Migrate into Space?

Abstract: Major human migrations have been triggered on Earth over the past million years or so whenever environmental changes, pressure for new resources, particularly food and water, or significant evolution in societies and culture, coupled with the quest for new opportunities and adventure, reached a tipping point. A new frontier for such a migration will be crossed when humans leave Earth for life in Space. What are the conditions that will trigger such a migration and how will human ingenuity be harnessed to make a successful move into the most inhospitable environment that humans have faced so far? The presentation will address the motives for, the implementation of, and the opportunities, rewards and changes in human culture resulting from such a migration, as well as some of the necessary conditions to be fulfilled before such a move can occur on any significant scale.
