Oscar: Ok, Mr. Truman, let’s say that we actually do land on this. What’s it gonna be like up there?
Truman: 200 degrees in the sunlight, minus 200 in the shade, canyons of razor-sharp rock, unpredictable gravitational conditions, unexpected eruptions, things like that.
Oscar: Okay, so the scariest environment imaginable. Thanks. That’s all you gotta say, scariest environment imaginable.
There are times when the odds seem stacked against you, and the road that lies ahead is a bit risky. But that risk, that nervous energy, that rush when you know that the path you have chosen is the right one. That makes it all worthwhile, even if for a bit you are in the scariest environment imaginable.
