Galileo V

Mallory: I spoke to my dad, I’m sorry about Galileo.

Sam:¬†They’ve got a lot of tests they can still try.

Mallory: How much is it going to cost to try them?

Sam: Don’t start with me.

Mallory: I’m asking as a taxpayer. It costs $165 million to lose the thing, how much more money is it going to cost to make sure you’re never going to find it?

Sam: I don’t know Mallory but we certainly won’t divert any municipal tax dollars which are always best spent on new hockey arenas.

Mallory: No, its better spent feeding, and housing, and educating.

Sam: There are a lot of people in the world Mal and none of them are hungry because we went to the Moon. None of them are colder and certainly none of them are dumber because we went to the Moon.

Mallory: And we went to the Moon, do we really have to go to Mars?

Sam: Yes!

Mallory: Why?

Sam: Because its next. Because we came out of the cave – and we looked over the hill and we saw fire. And we crossed the ocean, and we pioneered the West and we took to the sky. The history of man is hung on a timeline of exploration and this is whats next.
