Let alone, our absolute survival. I know it sounds silly now, in 2013, but in however many thousands of years - our existence here will end. Not to sound so gloomy, but the human race, on Planet Earth, is doomed. Whether it be tomorrow or a million years from now, in the grander scheme of things - it doesn't matter how much time. The truth remains - the human race, on Earth, is doomed. Without the expansion of our knowledge to include space travel and our understanding of the Universe - we will die along with it.
How's that for depressing?
