We live in a very interesting time for exploration. Centuries ago, when Europe began exploring the world, they were faced with the dilemma of not being able to see the destination, though it turned out to be not all that far away (a journey of just over a month or so). Now, we train our telescopes to the sky and can see zillions of places we would like to visit… but none of them are within reach. Exploration used to be a leap of faith, but these days we are left tantalized by countless destinations that are out of reach.
