Let's not let an explosion set us back

A new hope for progress in space exploration today lies in private companies such as SpaceX, which aims to make humanity a multi-planet species, in collaboration with already established government agencies that are currently conducting scientific research to help us understand what is necessary for longer space missions, in order that one day, perhaps we will be able to send humans to a place further than the moon. Indeed, the technological and scientific advancements that result from this will be incredible, and even if we don’t yet know how these newfound discoveries will directly affect us now, at least we were inspired to create something new, which will lead civilization into the future.
