Without manned spaceflight:

Gully Foyle is my name
America my nation.
Deep space is a cold cold place,
And death's my destination.

With manned spaceflight:

Gully Foyle is my name
And Terra is my nation.
Deep space is my dwelling place,
The stars my destination.

      ---paraphrase of Alfred Bester, from Tyger, Tyger, 1956
