As I travel on my journey into space, I begin to wonder if I am the only living creature out here. Could there be some other being out here asking them self the same question as I am? I wonder, I really wonder. As I journey back home to planet Earth I will always remember my beautiful journey into space.
Excellent article and worthy of discussion and serious thought. I suspect that AI and robotic development will reach the point that by the time we can send and return a few people to Mars, we can send indestructible “human-like” robots that can accomplish the same things (and more) on a Mars mission that a real human could do, but without the life-sustaining needs and fragility of humans.
