Some primates can fashion tool to a degree. Did not start evolutionary process of toolmaking.
Fashioned one stick. That's as far as they got.

This actually works well.

Ray: Space is important just as science is important. Lots of technology to go out in space.
More a fan of robotic exploration.
I think it does spark people's imagination. Go beyond our planet. What animal has done that? [bacteria?]
We have plenty of resources here.
No need to go out for resources.
Will go out, ultimately, to find more resources for computation. In about 100 years.
That's when we spread out. Examination of that in tomorrow's movie.
