If there is a will then there is a way. After spending what seems like countless days reading Tim Urban and Andrew Finns Wait But Whys latest feature on How and Why Spacex Will Colonize Mars detailing with in depth precision everything from how cool it was to go to the Moon in the 60's and how excitement has waned to the most important part of the piece and why Elon Musk is the most valuable person in the world.
We are doomed. Well maybe not us today but humanity in our time here on planet earth will one day succumb to one of four possible doomsday situations. When that time comes if we have colonized and made life on a different planet then we can ensure the survival of our species.
There are people who set out to change the world but can't because of financial constraints. We have to wonder how many other people would be on missions to disrupt the world for the better if their initial successes took off as Musk's had.
Elons mission is a motivator to the entire world. He wants to give us a reason to get up in the morning and to be excited about life. Life is all about being positive and having our sights set on big goals. Saving humanity and guaranteeing our future is just one of the many huge bonuses of what SpaceX is doing and he is so damn passionate about it that he is holding off on going to Mars until he knows that without the slightest bit of uncertainty that SpaceX will carry on with out him in full capacity with people as passionate and strong willed as he.
We all strive to be great and Musk is our Edison of today. The greatest man to ever live. Thousands of years if not millions the future will look back at this small period of time and talk about the man who saved humanity and ensured it's survival.
A whole new profound respect after reading the Wait But Why Novel on Space X and why it is so damn important.
