The Next Frontier

I just finished watching the 240 minutes (and extra 50 minutes of special features) PBS Documentary of "Lewis and Clark" by Ken Burns. Bringing to life the 1804-1806 remarkable story of the Corps of Discovery, the movie captivates you with imagining the thrill (and effort) to explore the unknown. 

In Captain Kirk's famous monologue: "Space the Final Frontier", there is an explorer arrogance of thinking there is a limit to exploration - Final Frontier.  Yet each and every expedition reveals more to discover - an infinite domain for human curiosity. 

And at the "end" of infinity?  The Next Frontier.
