I think that we're opening up new domains in science, new borders. We're expanding our knowledge, and I can only hope that in some ways we're discovering the lands that we'll move out to, not just robots but eventually to have humans on Mars, our sister planet-there's no reason not to go there, if we decide we want to go there we should. And the work we're doing now is laying the foundation for expanding out to other planets.
