When we run out of tax dollars, the U.S. will certainly be FLAT broke. How much did that project cost again? Mars is not a friendly place, any planets that scientist theorize we could survive on is light years away..now that is mind bending thought. I say shut the project down and feed the hungry. I once, as a joke, ask our science teacher if the world was flat, he answered who cares. Your ''I wonder if Mars is flat,'' brought back many good high school memories.I wonder if Mars is flat, too.
And no pipelines to foul our atmosphere.
I don't know about you but things would be more difficult and mor expensive without plastics. They save billions in preserving food....and no plastics!
VELKOME!Let's sneak up to the moon, erect a copy of the Statue of Liberty for the Russians to find, if they get there.
Further away, let's put up a huge flashing sign;
WELCOME TO LAS VEGAS
Wow, this video is amazing - The ability to look closely at a place that I will never be able to be; having the technology to understand the 'evolution' of Mars that once had water, just like Earth. It gives one a lot to think about. Thanks for posting!Curiosity Captures Incredible 1.8 Billion Pixel Panorama on Mars

While this is somewhat frightening, the space-science behind it may be helpful, even necessary at some point, if people are going to be able to survive on Earth. Genetic manipulation to protect us against increasing radiation on Earth may be required in the future. /-;Colonizing Mars may require humanity to tweak its DNA
If humanity is ever going to settle down on Mars, we may need to become a little less human.
Crewed missions to Mars, which NASA wants to start flying in the 2030s, will be tough on astronauts, exposing them to high radiation loads, bone-wasting microgravity and other hazards for several years at a time. But these pioneers should still be able to make it back to Earth in relatively good nick, agency officials have said.
It might be a different story for those who choose not to come home, however. If we want to stay safe and healthy while living permanently on Mars, or any other world beyond our home planet, we may need to make some tweaks to our species' basic blueprint, experts say.
It certainly does! Well put, Em.This possibility obviously raises big ethical questions
Can't really get my mind around the mechanics, but this grabbed me-Meet The 'Space Train' Concept That Can Get to Mars in 2 Days
"Charles Bombardier, a Montreal-based innovator, has unveiled a concept for a hypothetical space train called Solar Express that can shuttle passengers and payloads between planets faster than any existing systems."
"So, how would it work? Well, according to the team, Solar Express would consist of a series of aligned cylinders roughly 50 metres (164 feet) in length. Six of these cylinders - which you can think of as train cars - would link together in a straight line and hurtle through space."
