  1. Ray Bradbury once wrote a poem on how we were the only creatures on Earth that could really appreciate the stars. In a verse I quoted to the inaugural 100-Year Starship Symposium, it ended like this: “So think on this: We’re first. The only ones / Whom God has honored with his rise of suns / For us as gifts: Aldebaran, Centuri, homestead Mars / Arise, God says. Look there. Go fetch. / The stars, O Lord, much thanks, the stars.
