October 31: Futurists

October 31

When the pioneers and adventurers of our past left their homes in search of new lands, they said good-bye forever to the place of their birth and the companions of their youth. Only a lifetime ago, parents waved farewell to their emigrating children in the virtual certainty that they would never meet again.
And now, within one incredible generation, all this has changed.
~Arthur C. Clarke, We’ll Never Conquer Space (1960)

The danger of asteroid or comet impact is one of the best reasons for getting into space … I’m very fond of quoting my friend Larry Niven: “The dinosaurs became extinct because they didn’t have a space program. And if we become extinct because we don’t have a space program, it’ll serve us right!”
~Arthur C. Clarke, “Meeting of the Minds : Buzz Aldrin Visits Arthur C. Clarke“ by Andrew Chaikin (27 February 2001)
