Would you really feel safe knowing a bunch of amateur wannabe astronaughts might be flying over your house at any point?
And its this simple idea that will keep us forever bound to this planet. Fear. Fear of the unkown, the disasters, the setbacks, the failures and the
death. When we first set sail in the seas, we lost ships, we lost men and women, we got lost and got marooned on islands, marooned in the middle of
the sea. People died. Now, as we dip our toes into the sea of space, we must expect the exact same failures, the same setbacks and the same
opportunity for death.
The ultimate goal? Well, with seven billion and counting, finite resources and possibility for open thermonuclear war; I say its pretty simple to see.
We need to get off this rock and it won't be NASA that gets us there.
