See, people get excited about a new discovery! They say people like to dream big! They say they are curious about new species! We should seek them out to study and appreciate them and no we won’t wreck them! And we shouldn’t quibble about costs or obstacles!

Except when given the opportunity, that is. Well here’s an idea for you. Like species? Like new worlds, packed with life forms? Want a project? Here’s one! Build it, they will come!

Of course, it is impossible. The definition of impossible is this: something sensible, and necessary, with inestimable benefits now and forever, that will inconvenience some people.

Impossible. The only hope is that every once in a while, people do the impossible.
