Personally, I don’t see any reason to go there…....hell…they haven’t even put anyone else on the moon to look around…
Testimony by Ray Bradbury:
I’d like to put this in a framework for you. Five hundred years ago, three Italians set out from various parts of Europe. Christopher Columbus set out representing Spain. And then England came along, with Giovanni Caboto representing Henry the Eighth, and then a third person - Verrazzano, another Italian, set out for India.
So on the way to India, all three of them bumped into a huge obstruction. An obstruction that was empty, that was uncivilized, that was cold, and rejected them. Christopher Columbus did not land on the main continent of this huge obstruction on his first trip. Giovanni Caboto examined the northern regions of this unknown continent. Only one man, Verrazzano, landed on the shore somewhere near Kitty Hawk.
In a universe brimming with stars, the search is on if life exists elsewhere
That’s fascinating to think about - isn’t it? Four hundred years before Kitty Hawk, an Italian lands on an empty shore, and four hundred years later the Wright Brothers take off into the air above the Earth.
Now those people, and those Kings, and the whole population of Europe could not possibly predict that these three Italians would found a nation of 300 million people that would become the center of civilization, the center of a new thing called democracy, and change the history of world, and become the most powerful power of the world.
Now we are called upon, viewing the moon and Mars, to guess ahead five hundred years. That’s almost an impossible task, but we must try to do it.
