2001 A Space Odyssey vs The Way West By Electrostasis The Final Frontier is something that people all around the world have been seeking out from the beginning of time As citizens of this planet we like to call Earth there have always been barriers that we have had to overcome Be it the invention of the wheel or the innovation of the nuclear reactor all was thought impossible until completed Barriers have never stopped us before but people think we cannot travel through and colonize space but it is just another barrier we must break through We cannot overcome this barrier until we believe we can mentally 2001 A Space Odyssey and The Way West both demonstrate clear examples of this issue Both have specific barriers to overcome such as transportation communication and the whole mental issue of success These were overcome but only after strong mental preparation To start off well address the transportation issue The absurd thought of traveling an enormous distance to the Oregon Country was taken as just a bunch of gibberish in the days of the West Likewise the thought of being able to traveling far away from the Earth in space was also thought impossible In both cases these goals were actually not that absurd and were achieved In the western times people had to travel by means of wagon train if they wanted to get anywhere They relied on stockpiles of preserved foods and their oxen pulling their wagon Unlike the crude wagons of the West the astronauts in 2001 traveled in a highly advanced super-fast space ship most of them sleeping in cryo-sleep relying solely on dehydrated or synthesized foods stocked in their enormous Space Wagon You may think that these two situations have no differences but they actually have many similarities Both the settlers and the astronauts were trailblazers of a sort The pioneers were the very first to go all the way West
