Stop to think about this one simple little fact.
Our species exists only on the Earth - we have all our eggs in the one basket.
One simple mishap could wipe out all of humankind, every single moment of our existence would become worthless overnight.
Or we could show some intelligence and actually have a plan to get off the planet and spread our species far and wide.
We need to get to Mars, first.
