Hunkering Down

Preamble to my book: The Future of US Rocketry We have been here since the beginning of time. Just recently, through some magnificent trick of entropy, we have taken the form of sentient beings - for the blink of an eye, as time goes. Born into a chorus of living things,we are thoughtful, caring, communicative, inventive, adventurous, capable of stupendous deeds. How sad, if in the course of events, humanity opts to hunker down, passing up a signal opportunity to expand beyond Earth's boundaries. Entropy rules. One by one we return to matter, where we will remain 'til the end of time.
