    Yep; no doubt. NASA thinks so too or they wouldn't have launched.

    I watched the first landing on the moon in of all places, Bangkok Thailand. Back then all of us figured that within 10-20 years we would be landing men on Mars. But I have a sneaking suspicion that if there is to be a man landing on Mars it will not be us, it will probably be the Chinese first.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah I think by 70 years from now it will have happened. Nothing imminent though.

    I'm on the fence on this one. Personally I think it will come down to fiscal resources and something will have to give to invest the Trillions it will end up costing to get us to Mars. That means either Republicans give a little up being the world's police department or Democrats give a little up turning this nation into permanent dependent status (and they all may have to give up a little dollars going to pet projects.)

    Probably, I still don't get the point of it though. Remote is the way to go unless we can find a place we can get to for serious colonization. That sure aint Mars.

    Possible in the next 20 years.

    Heh, well Mercury would be a closer bet for that.

    I like to hope so. Though sending humans is far less necessary these days, and if we cannot find any economical/scientific reasons that a human needs to be there, we may just keep sending robots.
