At our current pace, we’ll become a Type 1 civilization within a couple hundred years. At that point we need to be space faring enough to be able to harness, store, and control the energy at the scale of our solar system. To get to that point, space travel/exploration has to get normalized and more routine. If we don’t, then longterm we risk our extinction.
