Relevance of the study is that the author gives an anthropological amendment to the existing physical-technical and economic concepts of space colonization, which do not take into account the known evolutionary processes of human intelligence, taking as default the position that scientific and technological progress entails the development of human intelligence. There is a gap between the anthropological reality and theoretical justifications for space colonization. And existing concepts of space colonization touching biological subjects, devoted to survival of mankind in space, or studying life forms in extraterrestrial worlds.
