Reid Gower made this awesome tribute to NASA and I think it’s a fitting reminder that we need to dream big and sometimes spend giant, heaping amounts of money on accomplishing the ridiculous. So beautifully and eloquently written.
“Our remote descendants, safely arrayed on many worlds through the solar system–and beyond–will be unified: by their common heritage, by their regard for their home planet, and by the knowledge that whatever other life may be, the only humans in all the universe come from Earth. They will gaze up and strain to find the blue dot in their skies…”
This guy deserves a Carl Sagan high five.
Update: Durrrr, it IS Carl Sagan. Should have known that.
