Earth is coming to an end, but your journey isn't.

Life on Earth as we know it is coming to an end. You are one of the few brave souls who remain. They are terraforming a planet in another solar system, but it will take five years to get there. You are going in an evacuation pod that can hold five other people. You have no remaining family members, as they all perished with the massive failure of the climate of Earth.

1. What five people--again, non-family--do you take with you?

2. The memory in the evacupod is very limited but you are allowed enough space for a few personal items. Which five albums do you take?

3. What five books?

4. What five movies?

5. There is a food replicator in the pod, but it only has the capability to replicate five food items. What items do you choose to take with you?

Bonus #1: Give the new planet a name.

Bonus #2: Everyone hated that name. How about a different one?
