Lightbulb Mars Landing

When will we as a human species land astronauts, cosmonauts, or taikonauts on Mars? This pleasant poll awaits!

As much as I'd love to see people land on Mars, it will never happen. From what I understand, NASA and the brainless powers that be have decided that space is "unsafe" for human explorers, and that all future space missions will be conducted by robots. So much for Gene's vision...

You need to add another option that says "more than 50".

Even if one were to grant that, NASA's only one part of the equation, though. Don't forget the Russians, et al.

I said 25 years. Eventually we'll get fed up of wondering and take a chance. Yes, space is obviously dangerous... but then so is driving a car. If people are willing to be part of a manned mission to Mars, NASA should get one organised.

I'd go, but I suspect they wouldn't require someone who doesn't quite understand the twin paradox up in space. They may want slightly more intelligent and scientific people.

Just breathing, and living is dangerous. But humans exploration has allways been about risk and reward.

NASA should adopt this!

Zardoz, I'm surprised! Shouldn't you know when that secret mission to mars will launch?
