The thing is we DO have the technology in place....
Why do we do it? to start off, we do it because we can. Someone once asked George Mallory why he wanted to climb Mt. Everest. His answer was simply "Because it's there." He made it to the Western cwm and the Lotse Face before eventually dying on the North Face. If we don't push ourselves, we'll never move forward.
It's something we should do simply because we CAN do it. I leave you with a quote from John Kennedy on this exact subject...
“We choose to go...not because [it is] easy, but because [it is] hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organize the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.”
