The end of us

Our expansionist mentality

"We imagine going to the moon and planting a flag, going to an asteroid and mining, going to Mars and setting up a colony. And I think that expansionist mentality is very self-destructive, especially given the kind of precarious relationship we now have to the ecosystem here on Earth, because it allows us to imagine that Earth is disposable" ~Trevor Paglen

A thought provoking quote... and I like the alien.

An important quote to go with your image. Great faffing.

food for thought. A fabulous other worldly scene but time to get back down to earth Adi, and save it.

beautifully done... i'm struggling with the quote, though... i understand the perspective, and certainly there is immense truth in the final phrase... but as a reason to not stretch our imagination to the stars? on that bit, i am dubious!
