Don't you agree?
Not anyway of exploring, we are working on that one too, don't forget, we have probes leaving the solar system as we speak, other probes on their way to Pluto as we speak, and of course Mars is sure getting a workover right now with the rovers, explorers, orbiters, and such, preparing the way for people to live there, maybe terraform it into a breathable atmosphere in a few hundred years. I think it's an exciting time for astronomy and space travel. Don't forget the International Space Station.
