Dinosaurs in Space

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.
