We can make Mars like Earth and live there. On a new planet. We can rocket to another world and build. Cities. Other rocket ships. We’ll— are you listening to me? Are you hearing the words that I’m saying? Why are you not excited about this?

What I have discovered is: ... The philosophical root of objection to Mars is not concerned with Mars at all. People who stand opposed to Mars think we sort of suck.

A love of Mars is a belief in humanity’s potential, and destiny. ... We may think people are good or [not], but we uniformly believe that people have the potential to be amazing. We tend to forgive ourselves our distant pasts completely, to only concern ourselves with the present occasionally, and to dream about the future relentlessly.

This is the story that Icarus told and the Wright Brothers fixed. We may not be a creature made to fly, but we are something far greater. We are a creature made to dream. We are a creature made to become whatever we want to become. ... We have work to do.

The universe is probably littered with the one-planet graves of cultures which made the sensible economic decision that there's no good reason to go into space - each discovered, studied, and remembered by the ones who made the irrational decision.

12 hours before our planned launch, Icarus, as Andrew's phone-home code for the Android had been dubbed, was working beautifully. Everything else was a shambles...
And yet, Noisebridge, the SF hacker space, did it: They sent a balloon into the stratosphere. Whoa. See also: Hackerspaces in Space

One day [we will] build the Pioneer 10 museum to celebrate the first artificial object to leave the solar system.
We'll build it around Pioneer 10, of course, perfectly co-moving. Visitors to the museum will be able to walk around the space-craft and admire its antique workmanship as it obliviously continues its steady journey towards Aldebaran.
