As stated in the above post, we need to explore for the

. We don't want to become stagnate. And besides, we have a lot to gain from colonizing space -- mining asteroids/planets/etc, spreading out humanity to reduce the threat of overpopulation, etc.
I expect it to be largely for economic reasons. People have explored much of the Earth in their quests for new resources. I don't expect the exploration of the solar system to be much different.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
