In my lifetime, wow
I'd love to see us get to mars in my lifetime, but I'm not sure I could deal with my dear husband for 501 days in a small space. I hope the billionaire that plans to put up a couple in space has the forethought to add a space for them to go when they are miffed at each other, a cooling off room type thing. As for the other billionaire, seems like he's putting the cart before the horse planning a colony before we've even set foot on it, though I'm sure my kids would be in the front row hoping they'd be picked. I personally hope NASA can get enough federal budget to make a manned mission to Mars a success one day. With all this talk of manned missions, has there been any movement in solving the little things like providing air and water and food to the people on the 501 day mission and those that are going to live on the planet?
