Imagine if you volunteered to be on the first interplanetary voyage

Imagine if you volunteered to be on the first interplanetary voyage.

It’s going to take a couple centuries to get there, of course. You’ll never see your family and friends again. You tell everyone goodbye and you climb into your cryogenic chamber to wait.

You don’t wake up until your ship arrives at the new earth. You and your crewmates gather excitedly around the portholes. A whole new planet no one has seen before. You look out at the blue of water and green of land, home to animals and plants no one has ever seen before.

Except.

You arrive to a bustling metropolis.

Not an alien metropolis. A certified 100% human metropolis here on this new earth.

And you find out that during your voyage NASA discovered wormholes and people have been traveling back and forth to this planet for a whole century now, awaiting your arrival.

Can you imagine what that would feel like?
