In 2014, the world avoided a horrific global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers — plus, frankly, thanks to some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now’s the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, “There’s no need to panic … but we need to get going.”

This sounds good in star trek where there doesn't exists any banking system and money don't exists anymore, as long as money exists the way they are right now we aren't going far, mars most likely is the first and last frontier, just because money are outdated and doesn't support human nature.
