Everybody, even the haters, praised President Donald Trump’s speech last night. That’s great. But everybody seems to have missed the most important point Trump made:
American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream.
Trump has been the best president on space exploration since John F. Kennedy, the one who pledged to put a man on the Moon. Trump has called for a return to the Moon, where we need to establish a base, and most importantly, he has called for a manned mission to Mars.
We need to go to Mars as soon as possible to begin the process of terraformation. Earth will not support us forever and we have to ensure the survival of our species. The importance of this cannot be overstated.
It is great that we finally have a president who understands this point.
