Where no man has gone before without a packed lunch

Financial Times:

Just as the 19th-century American pioneers believed it was their “manifest destiny” to push west to the Pacific Ocean, Nasa was founded partly on the faith that human destiny calls us to move beyond Earth, first to the moon and then into the solar system and eventually through the galaxy.

I have faith that my human destiny calls me to move beyond Earth -- first to the moon, then into the solar system, and eventually through the galaxy; but whether or not I will ever have enough vacation days to fulfill my destiny is the subject of some doubt.
