This trip to mars should be a suicide mission just get on it already. Launching from mars and returning makes the whole situation more than twice as complicated.

Given the opportunity I would go and gladly die.

I didn't read the whole thread, so maybe someone already said this, but NASA has a goal to make it to Mars before the next twenty years. The projected spending is between 45 and 250 billion dollars. That's gonna put another nice dent in national debt.

Well, you can't just go to Mars overnight. Bush's plan was actually a series of missions leading up to sending someone to Mars, which probably won't happen for at least another 15 years maybe.



the good news is that Bush is a genius :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

im writing this from the carribean on a cruise at 75 cents per min to say that this band sucks.

Shut the fuck up. I did get behind their instruments and played what they do. It was easy and generic as fuck. I'm playing for thousands of people on friday. This band sucks it's official.

I always hoped for a manned Mars landing in my lifetime, but I don't think it's going to happen before 2012.

Send Iraq to Mars. Two birds with one stone, my friends.

you will die of sodium poisoning before you ever take me with enough grains of salt.


Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

I just want to say... isn't a flying car just a small fucking plane?

I think a maned mission to Mars or another other planet is a waste of resources. With machines getting so much better send them, they don't have to sleep, breath, eat, or fuck. They don't even have to die really!

The moon is made from the same stuff as the Earth since it used to be part of it, we can learn more about prehistoric earth from the moon. Also if we set up an observatory there we can could see much more of the universe (this is already done with satellite telescopes though) since theres no atmosphere getting in the way.

sorry for not including the quotes to whom I was commenting on. I'M A NOOB

and Mario Galaxy rules for us astro nerds!

NO BECAUSE IT'S GOT 4 WHEELS THAT FOLD UP SO IT CAN FLY AND IT LOOKS LIKE A CAR NOT A PLANE!

I don't see where the confusion is.

...maybe if they just made a nice little plane that looked like a car with really good landing wheels youd be convinced.
Last I checked most plane's wheels tend to fold up when the thing takes off anyway... how far off is that?
