Humans are risk takers. Our desire to explore has likely led to the success of our species. To the risk takers, go the rewards.

Highdesert50.Totally agree. That's why I defend expensive rescue missions for explorers when all the sooky lalas start complaining these people got off the couch and did something. Even if for personal glory. And to be honest, they aren't that expensive as the rescuers and resources are being used anyway. There's another saying "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." For Red Dwarf fans in machine language "If you don't gosub a program loop, you won't get a sub route."
