Safety is largely an illusion, and it's even more so with any type of space travel. Just looking back over the last ten years, between 30k and 40k people die every year in the US in traffic accidents, and cars are more loaded with safety equipment than they've ever been. Yet we keep driving.

You either accept that life comes with risk, or you spend your life hiding in a closet.
