    Default curiosity is never satisfied?

    Hello Everyone,

    What does the underlined mean in the following sentence?


    ...Over the next four years, Apollo taught us what it means to be human: in a word, restless. Curiosity is never satisfied, it merely finds new targets.Quite how quickly the shift can occur was learnt by Pete Conrad, the third man to walk on the Moon (and the first to fall over on it). Once Armstrong and Aldrin had claimed the prize, no one was interested in Apollo 12...


    Regards

    Curiosity is never satisfied. - There is always new knowledge and other things that capture your interest. You always want to learn and know more. Knowledge is like food for the mind and brain. Your body always needs food, and your mind and brain always want to know more. Curiosity renews itself just like hunger for food renews itself. You've gotta eat. You've gotta learn. You've gotta think. You've gotta listen. You've gotta talk. You've gotta know. It goes on and on and on and on. You've gotta do things. You've gotta get everything you can and then more.
