What awaits us...

Edward M.

December 10, 2013

I'd like to think there will be something astounding enough that will make our species think beyond ourselves. Ultimately, that would be the discovery of some another sentience or intelligence, starting with a stronger commitment to extrasolar research and exploration. What is more realistic though, is the knowledge that we still have so much to learn, knowledge waiting for discovery. Our scientific potential is really what awaits us, beyond Titan and Europa, reaching ever outward and beyond. I hope we're smart enough to realize that it will lead us toward and surpass our imaginings.
