    I disagree, we have the tech to do it. Hopefully the will to do it will make it possible.

So, yes, I very well might have but of course its easy to say that since I don't have to do it so I might be full of ****.

    But I'm a lifelong Sci-Fi guy and I used to love adventure in my fearless youth.

    Call it the "spirit of adventure."

    It could be done. Could have been done some time ago actually. Main problem is how expensive it would be using current tech. Risks would be considerable too.

    From what everyone else had been saying, their timetable is beyond ambitious. Let alone the risks.
