B) Really it isn't even beyond current technical capabilities to send someone to Mars if we wanted to. There's just no reason to do so.
C) NASA has other missions besides sending men to nearby uninhabitable planets.
You only consider it "useless knowledge" because you are laboring under a misconception of what NASA does. NASA's most important missions are knowledge-gathering missions with probes and computers, not human exploration missions.Originally Posted by UtahBill
