I guess there must be something very intriguing about space travel, because of recorded information & drawings from the late 1600's. Me - well I am satisfied at looking up at the stars, the milky way and the moon.
If this planet had of been cared for properly in the first place, they wouldn't be so anxious to explore other planets, in my opinion.
