I would, if I could, restrict a habitable moon of Jupiter to selected occupancy only. I.E.: I have this "little list" of politicians, assorted riff-raff, neighbors and in-laws which would comprise the colonists/ permanent residents. Most of this select group would be indifferent to the type of cuisine served on such a moon as long as someone else foots the bill.

Hawaii, with the influx of anxious vacationers, is reporting car rental rates of $200 to $700 per day. Some were clever enough to rent U-Haul trucks at much less rates.

I can't image rates on any moon being anything less than.... "out of this world".

It would be incredibly cold there. Now if Jupiter were to become a star it would be much differant. Scientist are saying it's almost there. A bit more mass and boom! We become a binary system.

If you add a little more than 80x it’s existing mass it will then become a low-mass star. But why ruin a good sci- fy movie. ;)

For some dumb reason, whenever I read the question I remember the old SNL skit, which included the question:

“If the Moon were made of ribs, would you eat it?”

It could always become a dwarf star. We don't know.
Science suggests in order to become a Brown Dwarf, you would need approximately 13x the current mass of Jupiter. In order to become a Red Dwarf star, you would need 80x Jupiter masses.

Barring alien monoliths, it's not going to happen.

Unless Earth were completely uninhabitable due to global warming or an asteroid impact, I would definitely choose Earth over Jupiter's moons... although the experience would probably be very exciting, I would probably become very homesick.

The devil is in the detail
Like everyone else (I think?) I have been concentrating on the outer SS moons when the Sun expands). But what about the planets? They are going to lose virtually all their H and He as the Sun warms them, and then the methane as well when it gets to Uranus and Neptune. They afawk have solid cores. Are they going to be water worlds as well?

Ultimately, I don't think it's going to be a question of "would”, but to more as "have to"! If we "humans" keep ruining our current relationship with mother earth, she's eventually going to get bored with us!
