That would describe in a way what drives the plot of Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming film Interstellar. First teaser trailer, living right up to it’s name was just released. Watch it in all it’s glory. While we might be years away from space interstellar travel, that’s a way of solving humanity’s problems as far as resources and natural aspect is concerned. Though that’s far from the problems we have.
Okay I’ll shut up without further deviating, just watch this already:
“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments, these moments when we dare to aim higher to great barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known.
I count these moments as our proudest achievements, but we lost all that. Or perhaps we’re just forgotten that we’re still pioneers, that we’ve barely begun.
And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
