I want to hear a story set in the future that addresses the question Why Mankind Left Earth? Not all of mankind needs to have left earth, it could be a whole species migration, or a small group that strike out, or anything in between. How many people have left earth and where they go/have gone is up to you. You could chose to follow that journey or set your story at some point after, but you don't need to directly address why in the body of your story and the prompt could be met with a single sentence that explains what motivated them, as long as there is a reason in there somewhere. The people who have left must have left permanently, although this doesn't have to rule out return visits. I would like a fictional story included a reason that mankind has left earth. The perspective you chose and the story you tell is entirely up to you, this could be the focus of your story, or you could weave it into the background, you know I love prompt pushing interpretation, so let your imagination run wild!
