Let us, for a moment, use the Mars missions as a general example of man’s progress. There has been skepticism regarding Bush’s priorities, or shall I say Bush’s interjection of “His Vision” of the future of space travel/discoveries etc. And that made me think for a moment as to what our priority should be, that is if space exploration itself was believed to be a “less important” priority for man to tackle at this time. So, I went through a quick list, in my head, and thought of many things that would be more important than space travel/discoveries. It was pretty simple, but one thing had crossed my mind, that was more important than any issue both big and small. It was progress itself.

We can sit and argue all day as to what man should do next or what should be the most important, but if we don’t show progress than it’s all pointless.

So, to me, progress is the number one priority...
