It’s a tough one.

Unless something goes horribly wrong, there will probably be a sort of regular commerce between earth and Mehra, and Tanya has had the longevity treatment, so five years each way wouldn't be a big deal for her.

She could go to Earth for a while, and then return when the novelty wore off.

Earth is probably teeming at this point with Billions of people ready and waiting for their chance to find a new life "Off World." Tanya might be overwhelmed by it all...

Mehra is probably not the only colony world (I'm assuming the Earth colony gig is going 'Macross Frontier' minus the idol singers, VFs and SDFs) with the number of ships being launched...

It would be expensive, so probably paid for with contracts... not like their ship, (that was all an experiment) but still carefully selected members only. Eugenics only passing the best-qualified. Crank that up and you empty the planet of the best, leaving behind the lessors, the criminals, those missing something critical.
It becomes a backward place while the explorers, the best at everything expand to new worlds.
It would be hard to qualify, horrible to stay yet want to leave.

Well, dunno that it would be THAT bad. Being some kind of possible carrier for a genetic disease and/or liking your home doesn’t make an inherently worse citizen. Also earth is already big now, so I imagine it’d take an absurdly long time to even start to empty by the shipload, assuming you could even find enough people who wanted to go.

Well IF I knew the future for certain I'd be buying lottery tickets! =D
