Aside from all the technical knowledge gained (which we also use here on Earth) all our eggs are in one basket, so to speak.
One mass extinction event like an asteroid strike, and humans would be no more.
We need to spread ourselves out by colonizing other worlds.

Off topic, but my power went out twice today. We didn't even have a big storm.
Plus, I just got a big scare. There was a loud zap over my head and the housing for the light on my ceiling fan fell... just missing my head. YIKES!!!!
Ha! I was on my feet in an instant and 3 feet away.
The wires shorted and knocked the metal housing loose.
I'm wondering if it had anything to do with the power going off..... Like a power surge might have burned through the wires, or something. Then after the light was on for awhile, it burned the rest of the way through.
My heart's still pumpin'.
I'm surprised it didn't blow a fuse.

Thanks.... It wasn't that bad. The power wasn't out all that long and the short and crash just startled me. The metal housing is thin metal, so I wouldn't have been seriously injured. Maybe a bump on the noggin is about all.
I've always had a problem with the lights in that fan. When you try to unscrew them, the electrical fixture itself unscrews too. And it's too small to get your fingers inside to prevent that from happening. Grrrr.
At any rate, I'm going to remove it and buy a new ceiling light. I really don't need a fan.
