    If it was proven tech. These people are idiots. You don't even have a long term settlement on the closest celestial body, aka, The Moon, and you think you can launch a one way rocket to Mars somewhere in the next 9 years so that it arrives in 2023.... Idiots.

    If humans were meant to live there, they would already be there.

    I can think of better things to worry about in this country besides Mars. . . Like what a Russian submarine was doing in the Gulf near U.S. soil that went undetected for two weeks. . . While we're looking up, other countries have their eye on us. http://freebeacon.com/silent-...

    I'd do a 6 month stint there...kind of like they do in Antarctica. I suppose at 8 months each way, that it would be almost a 2 year commitment though.

    Again from my previous post.... Mars would be a one-way trip for anyone who stayed there for even a short period of time. You could never return to Earth. Mar's mass is less than one third that of the Earth's and therefore its gravity is also less than one third. If you weighed 150 lbs on Earth, you'd weigh about 50 lbs on Mars. Every muscle in your body, including your heart, would adjust to the lesser weight and stress. If you did return, you probably would not even be able to stand up and your heart would give out almost immediately. We know this because a Russian astronaut in tip top physical shape, having returned from space after about a month (his space capsule not designed to produce artificial gravity like the space station pictured in "2001, a Space Odyssey"), had to be carried from from his landing craft and died from a heart attack a short time thereafter. There is no way to create artificial gravity on a planet.

    If that's all actually true, you would probably die when you got there after the 8 month trip to Mars in zero gravity. No need to go then. I suspect if we could actually colonize Mars, then we'd be able to build a ship to recreate gravity and slowly introduce more on the 8 month trip back. Problem solved.

    Artificial gravity in outer space is easy to create in a space capsule or space ship. However, we do not have the technology, nor may there even be any technology, to control gravity on a planet's surface.

    Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Al Gore, and everyone at the DNC convention should be the first to colonize it. For world peace, you know.

    That would be absolute boredom. Maybe a short visit but the surface looks boring. No fishing, boating, etc..

    In all probability, if colonization of Mars is even possible, it will be far into the future before it ever happens. Several millennia at least. Obviously, no one living now will still be alive when colonization even becomes feasible.

    I would love to visit though, that and to the moon. I feel I need to stay on earth and help preserve it, you can't just go around taking natural resources from just anywhere. As human beings we feel entitled to everything, when mother nature slaps us in the face I shall laugh.

    Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.

    In fact it's cold as hell.

    And there's no one there to raise them if you did!

    Someone living in that small community would get real religious and claim to be a prophet of god and because of the atmospheric conditions I would not be able to walk away.
