“The billionaire space race is on, with the next level to be reached when regularly scheduled flights become the norm, ticket sales and all. … Why go to space now, some say, when we have so many problems on Earth? Well, explorers and adventurers did not wait till Europe’s problems were solved to explore and settle the Americas. They pushed forward. Just as there is a division of labor in society, there is a division of ambition, of venture.” (07/13/21)
