Outlook

“The totality of that, to me, I find deeply inspiring, and the exploration of life outside of just the Earth in which we’ve lived, I think, is really important for humankind. So for me, it’s just an opportunity to be around great people and help usher that along in my own way” (Chamath Palihapitiya).
