    SpaceX has other ideas about going to Mars, and is currently in the process of implementing them. If all goes well, SpaceX will launch an unmanned Dragon capsule in May 2018 and land it approximately six months later on Mars. For more on this, see post #96 (and the posts that follow it) in this thread:

    Can you think of any reason that women would not be about to conceive and bear children on Mars?

    I would think that mother and baby might have to take even extra precautions for radiation.

    Mars ain't no kind of place to raise your kids. In fact - it's cold as Hell.

    On going to mars -

    On one hand; we do need a positive national goal. Something every American can rally around and feel good about having accomplished as a Society, as a Nation, and as a People.

    On the other hand; America needs a comprehensive improvement program. We have a lot of domestic problems in America and charity begins at home.

    Available resources are not infinite and should not substantially flow to the highest echelons.

    In that case, we don't need to be looking at rocket companies that are in the process of generating new wealth. We need to look at Congress, which has a bad habit of spending money it doesn't have on projects that waste tons of money.

    That is because Congress gives voters what they want: which is "free" stuff. Citizens vote based primarily on how much of the federal loot each has brought, or promises to bring, or seems like they might bring, back home to their district. From top to bottom we have a pay-to-play system. Educated, thoughtful, reflective, citizens who think altruistically and vote accordingly are exceedingly rare. We not only have the best government that money can buy - we also have the best voters that money can buy.

    5 Popular Misconceptions About NASA

    #3. “Why are we spending all that money on Space when we could be spending it down here on Earth?”
    There are currently no banks or shops in space, so it turns out every dollar NASA spends is spent right here down on Earth. The design, R&D, and manufacture of satellites, rockets, and other space-related technologies—and employing tens of thousands of people to do it—pump billions of dollars into the U.S. economy. Studies estimate a $7-$14 return on investment for every $1 of NASA expenditure, with all of it going directly back into the U.S. Treasury.

    Every dollar NASA spends is spent here on Earth, and the technological advances from the work often benefit our everyday lives.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lauren...b_3561205.html


    Public opinion polls show that Americans believe that NASA takes up about 20% of the national budget. However, the overall annual NASA budget is only about 0.5% of U.S. Government spending. That’s half a penny of every tax dollar. By comparison, in 2012, the government spent the same amount of money on Farm Subsidies (0.4%) and Agricultural Research (0.1%) as it did on NASA.
