Human exploration has throughout time functioned as an inspirational endeavor that unites and at times galvanizes a community and culture toward a common goal. At times exploration also represents the most selfless and selfish act humans can engage in.However, since the dawn of spaceflight, the ability of humans around the globe to visualize almost in real time what it means to journey to other planets among the stars has been a spectacular source of inspiration and unification. It’s important to reflect on and accept the responsibility of that power to inspire and unite.
