Carl Sagan - The Frontier Is Everywhere
Not gonna to lie, the first time I watched this video almost a year ago…my eyes got watery. This is one of the reasons why I’m becoming a scientist. People are too distracted by pointless day to day happenings…celebrity news, what your friends are tweeting about, ignorant reality tv shows, buying cool new things you don’t actually need. These day to day distractions keep us from looking forward at the big picture, and sustains our ignorance to the vast possibilities the future holds. If we collectively invested more into the question “what can be?” rather than “what’s happening right now?”, humanity would progress into a future much greater than what we could have ever conceived or thought possible as of now. Long live science!
