Dinosaurs in Space

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Great quote from Sir Arthur in 2001…

The danger of asteroid or comet impact is one of the best reasons for getting into space … I’m very fond
of quoting my friend Larry Niven: “The dinosaurs became extinct because they didn’t have a space program.
And if we become extinct because we don’t have a space program, it’ll serve us right!”

It’s from “Meeting of the Minds: Buzz Aldrin Visits Arthur C. Clarke, Andrew Chaikin, 2001” — one of many great quotes.
