    Anyone remember the Burma Shave signs along the road? If not the little red signs would have only part of a poem and you would read the next part a couple hundred feet further.

    Anyway I remember this one about Mars.
    FREE FREE A TRIP TO MARS FOR 900 EMPTY JARS BURMA SHAVE

    Well as the story goes a consumer sent in 900 jars. To not be guilty of false advertising the company sent the consumer to Mars.......Mars Germany.

    This was from a book about the signs. I think it was called "The Signs Along The Road"
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.

    All for it if it's privately funded.

    So why are we here?

    Like the writer Kurt Vonnegut said, "We are here on Earth to fart around."

    Gotta think outside the box.

    We're all already in space.

    All you're asking is if we/they should go from point "A" to "point "B".
    Is this a Fabreze moment? C.Y.D. I'm voting white elephant. 2¢.

    Mars cycler

    Not as simple as it looks:

    Earth-Mars 2-Synodic Cycler
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Qrl9F4YOHw

    ANALYSIS OF VARIOUS TWO SYNODIC PERIOD
    EARTH-MARS CYCLER TRAJECTORIES

    Summary
    Three versions of cycler trajectories taking two
    Earth-Mars synodic periods to repeat are analyzed.
    Detailed analysis in the circular coplanar model
    gives guidance as to the basic physical characteris-
    tics of the trajectories. Analysis with a realistic
    model of the Solar System including accurate
    ephemerides of the Earth and Mars and using
    point-to -point conic (V-matching) modeling for
    the vehicle trajectory gives a very good representa-
    tion of the actual trajectories.

    The overall optimal real world cycler, over the full
    30-year period necessary for a two synodic period
    cycler, may be a clever combination of the various
    possible cyclers.

    Yes, space exploration is important for learning more about ourselves and our place in the universe.
