Oberg: “I think some people are using the coffins as a soapbox. It always happens, it is unseemly and the best thing to do is treat such people with the contempt they deserve.”
Oberg: “We are explorers, we are discoverers, and that if we stop exploring and discovering, we stagnate and eventually we’re gone, because we humans are descendents, not of the stay-at-homes, the smug self-satisfied stomach and groin crowd, but of the people who went out, risked and died to find out new things.”
