When Chabad Rabonim were debating the Shabbos times for the Antarctica cruise, one said not to go if the boat will go far enough south that there's a question.
Another responded that a p'sak is needed...when humankind goes to the Moon and Mars, the halachic answer can't just be don't go.
Hopefully we will have neviim for that one

A רב is required to answer halachic questions even when the situation is a בדיעבד situation. That doesn't make a בדיעבד situation one that a person should jump into head first.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm aware. The boat was not scheduled to travel that far south, and indeed didn't come remotely close thanks to our diversion. But we needed a psak in case it did.

It was also only a question according to the Alter Rebbe's shkia haniris vs shika emitis, which required another thorny question about what to do about a ship where a minority might have to keep different Shabbos times. And in shkia haniris itself there are many opinions among chabad rabonim. Luckily it didn't come to that.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

And yet
That was prior to the rule. The real difference is that once we have Eliyahu Hanavi we return to a straight mesora (Ramban iirc)
