so I love the exploring attitude. This has parallels to early colonists to America. But my sense is
a) that the costs to get there , are , adjusted for inflation, way higher. b) the costs to live there are even higher: you can't grown corn there, or hunt deer (tho granted, no Indigenous Tribes) c) that a lot of the explorers, whilst marketing as 'for the crown' were doing it for profit.
So costs are way higher, comparatively, and, show me the money?
