In the long term even if there were no disasters through cosmological timescale in our solar system, I don't see mankind as an exponentially growing species as able to remain self-sustaining, therefore even the solar system will be outstripped.
Assuming humanity IS an exponentially growing species; the growth curve is expected to flatten out and eventually reverse within the next sixty years.

But that's a problem for the distant future -- 2 or 3 millenia from now -- by which time the solar-system spanning humanity will be able to begin to think about expanding to neighboring star systems using technology they already have. But that's not going to happen until humans have become accustomed to living and working in space as a matter of course.
