Are We Ready?

When I look to the sky and see all the stars, I think of “conquer and conquest,” of exploring new worlds and the amazing possibilities of the universe. I consider space travel as a sort of return. After all, the elements in our bodies were created millions of years ago in those stars. I’m also interested in our planet and the fact that conquer and conquest is a selfish ideology based on human arrogance; it contradicts everything I believe in. Is space travel that important to the advancement of the human race? Am I too distracted by the pretty nebulae to see the injustices that happen here? Is this escapism? Are we ready to go home yet?
