"We might set up house on Mars but ...
we do very little exploring the blue part of the planet.
We have done so much skyward, I would like to see us spend
more money and effort to explore below us.”
"We are all together in this single living ecosystem called planet earth. As we learn how we fit into the greater scheme of things, and begin to understand how the system works, we can plan ahead, we can use the resources responsibly, to show some respect for this inheritance that goes back 4.6 billion years."
