Before we abandon Earth for another planet, it’d be useful to test out the potential new digs. The Earthship Project has been at it since the 1960s and in 1997 began allowing guests to sleep in its sustainable pods (for periods of less than an eternity). Made from recycled or sustainable materials, the earthships recycle their own gray water, generate their own power, and grow their own food. They’re also equipped with amenities unlikely to be found in outer space: Wi-Fi, TV, and streaming Netflix.
