      To explore. There’s a classic response from Mallory, a famous mountain climber, who was asked why he wanted to climb Everest. He said ‘Because it’s there.’

      There’s a big part of human nature that makes us curious and want to explore our surroundings – we always want to know more, and every innovation and invention the human race has had has been because of that instinct.

      I want to see what Saturn looks like up close – if I build a camera and send it there, I will!
