The second reason is that how safe would it be to rely on machinery to put oxygen into the air you breath, how safe is it to step onto a world that few if any has been on and lived to tell the tale. How would we know if there wasn't a storm brewing on the surface of the planet, ready at any moment to destroy the puny man and his machines that tickle it's surface.

We just have to do it one world at a time starting with Earth.
