I just read Orbiter by Warren Ellis – My thoughts

I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up. I can’t say I tried really hard to be one, but it would have been nice. Perhaps if I’d been able to join the Air Force, I would have gotten the ideas to go in the right directions. That didn’t happen though.
Recently, it seems that manned space travel is declining. That makes me sad. We need to be out there, exploring. God made the universe for a reason. One of those reasons is because men need places to explore. We’ve still got a lot of the sea left, but there’s an infinity of space out there, and we’ve never stepped past the moon.
Orbiter brings the sense of wonder back to just stepping into space. Never mind galaxy spanning empires and ships that go on for miles, we haven’t even gone to Mars yet. We never will if we don’t try. As much as I like it here, it’d be a wonder to start again on a brand new planet. Even if I never get that option, I hope my kids, or grandkids if not, at least get the option to step into the stars.
