User Reviews

Intriguing and visionary, regardless.
4 February 2019 | by hamiltondlSee all my reviews

Every history-making journey starts with a vision, a dream. This presentation simply puts forth one possible path. It may not happen this way. It may never happen, but I'd like to think we, as a species, have the vision to pursue the possibilities. I applaud the effort and goal.
