…That all the labours of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noon-day brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man’s achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruin – all these things, if not quite beyond dispute, are yet so nearly certain, that no philosophy which rejects them can hope to stand.
     —    Bertrand Russell
[I do not dispute the eventual destruction of the earth or of our solar system.  I dispute the inevitable destruction of mankind and man’s spirit.  Barring an “extinction level event” before we are able to colonize space and visit other stars, man will endure.    —    kmab]
