You should take carbon on your trip to space because it can produce diamonds, which you can use to trade with other human s or aliens. It also produces kerosene and coal, which is a key element for every day needs, such as to light candles, or keep a furnace burning for heat or for cooking. If you weren't convinced by those examples that I listed above, you have to have carbon to survive.
