I can't wait for humanity to build an "unmanned" spaceship filled with human eggs that only get fertilized 1,000 years from now when it reaches [insert exciting destination] and then the babies are raised by AI and trained so they can populate other worlds.

Typically techie :)

Babies die or have extreme developmental issues without physical contact https://www.google.hr/amp/s/www.psychologytoday.com/blog/bor...

Hey Alexa/Siri/etc? Please raise my baby colony.

We’ll need a robot that can change diapers and wipe butts first. Interestingly I’m sure that has terrestrial uses as well so we might actually see it!

I think you might enjoy this Sci Fi novel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyage_from_Yesteryear

Thank you! Will definitely check it out.

Babies need love!! You’re going to need to put some people on that ship.

Relevant: The Harlow Monkey Love Experiments: http://pages.uoregon.edu/adoption/studies/HarlowMLE.htm

Anytime I read about the Harlow experiment I just want to cry.

Or a big friendly dog!

How about some very convincing androids?

Very similar to the Pathfinder books by Orson Scott Card.

Nice Alien:Resurrection reference.

Wasn't aware.. should probably watch that movie
