As the other thread asks one side of the question, I'd like to shoot for the more aspirational angle.

What do you want to live to see BEFORE you die? Not necessarily a 'living a full life' thing, here - not an ongoing activity, as basically by definition they don't identify a specific event.

Rather, it's that specific event - the one thing you believe might be in reach of your lifetime you hope to actually see.

Myself, as an avid science fiction buff, and with a sound enough understanding of the scale of the galaxy and challenges around that for travel making MOST SciFi stories a bit ridiculous...I'd be pretty happy to live long enough for us to discover incontrovertible proof that there is other life in the galaxy. Some observation of an alien megastructure or artificial electromagnetic signal or something like that. Unquestionably confirmed, though - proof there is other advanced life out there.

Us getting back out in space.

It's the shame of our nation that we quit going to the moon in 1972.

A successful manned mission to (and back from) Mars. That would be pretty cool (Marshall will not agree, so if he's checking out this thread, I expect to be castigated, but I'm OK with that!)

Essentially this, but I'm skeptical of "uploading." As long as there arises the ability to overcome aging and choose one's own preferred appearance I will be quite pleased.

Just buy an elephant and put a mink coat on it.

Discover what's beyond the "edge" of the universe or if there even is one. A VERY long shot is life on other planets
