If we do not go into space, everything that we have ever worked for and everything that we will accomplish from here on out will all have been for nothing.

I can not stress this enough.

Progress is not the iPhone that you hold in your hand.

Progress is not about how automatic, mindless, and convenient we can make our lives.

Progress lies among the stars.

Space is our only field of study that has the potential for limitless expanse.

Space is the only setting fit for human progress after the inevitable death of the planet we call home.

Space is the only hope for humanity.

I will say it again.

If we do not go into space, everything that we have ever worked for and everything that we will accomplish from here on out will all have been for nothing.

This is of dire importance, and I wish that people would start giving a shit and acting like it is.

  1. I am afraid of what will happen if our lives become so automatic that we don't have to do anything. The consequences of this will be dire indeed.

  2. The people living here are feeding off earth too much, eventually the time will come when there is no more earth to feed off. Yes we are advancing in that there are more "earth-friendly" things. However, not everybody really understands about what is going to happen when the air is not breathable anymore, when the water is not drinkable anymore, etc.. maybe if they are taught... Even if they know and care it might just be too late. People know they just don't care... you are right about that, so yes maybe some of humanity can be saved, or can continue to live I should say in this manner.

  3. Technology has decades to go before any ventures into space will be worthwhile. But I do believe that space is the ultimate goal. I don't think that our lives will ever become "so automatic" though. The way we live may change drastically (and I hope it does). Eventually technology and science will change everything from morals, to religion, to politics, to the things we value most, and I don't mean this in a necessarily negative way. But yes, I wish we would hurry up and get to the point where we can go into space and use our time wisely for things other than analyzing dirt.
