    “NASA and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will investigate ways to collaborate on future missions to Mars, officials said Tuesday (Sept. 30). The announcement comes just one week after India put its first-ever Mars probe in orbit around the Red Planet, becoming just the fourth entity (after the United States, the Soviet Union and the European Space Agency) to do so.”
      ― Mike Wall (Senior Writer, Yahoo News)

    “I think there is a strong humanitarian argument for making life multi-planetary, in order to safeguard the existence of humanity in the event that something catastrophic were to happen, in which case being poor or having a disease would be irrelevant, because humanity would be extinct. It would be like, ‘Good news, the problems of poverty and disease have been solved, but the bad news is there aren’t any humans left.'”
      ― Elon Musk (CEO, SpaceX;Tesla)

    “Colonies on the moon present several advantages. The moon has 1/6 the gravitational pull of the Earth, so it could become a cheaper spaceport from which to launch missions to other parts of our solar system. It has some natural resources, which could be mined, such as regions with high titanium concentrations and implanted helium from the sun, which could be used for developing energy from fusion. The moon has not undergone as much volcanic and tectonic processing as the Earth, so it still retains information from the early history of the solar system, which has been lost here on our home planet—it therefore can help us better understand the origin and early history of our own planet.”
      ― Dr. Nadine G. Barlow (Professor, NAU)
