  •  I'll admit, I'm a big fan of Mars missions. (0+ / 0-)

    The shuttle I've regarded from the beginning as pandering to people who wanted show but didn't understand substance. It hasn't been without some returns, of course, but the science per dollar from human missions pales in comparison to the return from the robotic stuff.

    A goal of sending humans to Mars is to some degree a different story. It's fantastically expensive and dangerous, but would be another truly inspirational mission. And I suspect the cost is minuscule when compared to some other things we've seen lately, like bailing out AIG...

    Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40
