why did anyone in our past who bothered wondering about what was over the horizon sail there in flimsy wooden ships?
why did anyone bother to try and make - and then fly - the first aeroplane?
why did anyone try and climb the highest point on our planet, or swim to the lowest depths, when technology that was basic and crude?

Because we are curious, inventive, brave and adventurous.
Because we are human.
