Freedom from dependence on Earth

Gavin Ayling

November 28, 2012

Humanity has all its eggs in one basket. Since life first evolved on Earth great extinction events have caused the demise of the species. Scientific progress is leading slowly towards a time when the basics of interplanetary travel will be affordable and a realistic proposition, but humanity needs to unite in an effort to develop those key technologies that are required to start a self-sufficient population on Mars and further afield. Let us free humanity from dependence upon one planet, and let's do it soon!
