Aldrin: Aldrin: It’s time to focus on Mars

Buzz Aldrin: The Washington Post:

As matter of orbital mechanics, missions from Earth to Mars for migration are complex. That said, human nature — and potentially the ultimate survival of our species — demands humanity’s continued outward reach into the universe. Call it curiosity or calculation, strategic planning or destiny. Put simply: We explore, or we expire. That is why we must get on with it.

Great essay. Wholeheartedly endorse.
