Its time.. Whomever becomes the president this Nov, should do what Kennedy did 50 years ago, when he said we are going to the moon. Just as the Apollo program brought this country together so would a mission to Mars. And in doing so create thousands of needed jobs, new inventions and advances in technology.. Going to the moon was truly a miracle, we need a miracle once again....

Its all earth!

How about we fix our own planet first including the economy. Then consider wasting tons of money to go to Mars for whatever reason. Or better yet, lets explore our own planet, there are places in the ocean we have no clue to what is there.

What we need is a cold war enemy that we are scared to death of, and a generation of Americans that are used to sacrificing for the greater good (post-WWII).
We don't have either.

We could replace "cold war enemy" with "Global Warming" and "Extinction of Humanity" - but those aren't as sexy as a multi-megaton nuke.

Not sure what to do about the "sacrificing for the greater good" part. That seems to have been lost in the '70s.

The money on a Mars mission would be spent to employ Americans that would use their paychecks to buy goods and services. It's not like bundles of cash are sent to Mars.

Like Martians!! We better go make sure they aren't there waiting to strike!

The "Martians" we will find there will be 100,000 years dead - and the size of a microbe.

We should have launched a Mars "tera-forming" rover - call it "Johnnie Appleseed". It could walk around Mars spreading germs, microbes - you know, stuff that could make it human habitable - in 1,000 years.

Between humanity making the Earth's ecosystem more like Mars, and Mars becoming more like the "new" Earth, humanity will have adapted and be able to live on both.

We'll need it.

Better than Excelleent- a

Tell all the manufactures, contractor's, and worker's to report back to station and get every thing right down to the last tube of glue and pop rivet - even the cast off used stuff inventoried ! and sorted out - Even the demo's and prototype's.
Bring back the stuff you took home while your at it

Get two spanking bird's in the bay' for BRAND spanking NEW manufacturing. Use all the new wiz- bang stuff just waiting - and never used.

Go get the old girl's back - TOO DAM BAD --- Tough Noogies - and give them full complete full tear down's and get one up like yesterday.

Most likely theirs plenty of stuff sitting just around the barn out back - before the scrapper's get to it. With even more left over if you look.

Get VANDENBERG California back up to Par and ready to receive and shoot em like intended - Forgot didn't you Yup that's the the one they crushed first.

A Big ass Hanger in space with good air locks and start manufacturing UP Their for Profit. Use all the dead clunker's up their - who care's what it look's like? Finder's keeper's right ?

Or a Yacht big enough to take a one year journey. Hook it up to the ISS Drag it out and back to Mar's just to clear the hanger and start on the NEW and Improved one

Send it out of our Galactic Plain - instead of out - send it up or down - the other way

How do you pay em ?? Simple Food - Living Cost's, Shelter, Medical - Education and what ever else you want -so you don't need to worry.

Just Get BUSY ! Food's pretty good & We got hella va good school's for the Little's - we need em

Kid need's brace's ?? Go see that guy - in Bay 6 he does em with some of that memory metal. Or a Knee Check this out

Their would be drove's of X space affiliated people - standing out side the gates of every plant - just to push a broom -or drag a hose for a opportunity waving their old I.D. Cards

Wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch of OLD Fart's with Tin Hat's - Loading part's of the Saturn IV on HEavey haulers - Looking over a spot in the parking lot to set up

Least they all get to eat all the cheese they want

GREYEAGLE Great post, I know what you mean. Theirs gold in that post. Some just cant see it. Like he said there is all kinds of junk in space now that we could harvest and use to build a ship to go out. A man can run through a junk yard and build most anything if he has insight. Get them Saturn 5's back in service shoot about a dozen or two up with some new tech onboard to make all that old space junk useable again. And for the love of it, build a huge space ship the size of a aircraft carrier. And then get'ur done. Like the show Battlestar Gallitica, we need ships in space like that big. A whole fleet.

GE is a pretty smart dude.....he just needs a translator sometimes
There is a saying in racing...."cautions breed cautions"....well....I think Technology breeds technology.....the advances become exponential once you take a chance....
We have to get back to the days of risk.....in order to advance. The Challenger and Columbia disasters were tragic......however they are part of the game. Could you imagine where we'd be in aviation if it took 2 years to investigate the first passenger plane crash or if all jet airliners were grounded for years after a mishap?

Ironically......we could have been exploring the moons of Jupiter or Saturn now had we continued development of this:

It would be a waiste of time and money to place a man on Mars.

It can be done, thats not even a question.

with our current rover, we will gain as much knowledge as if a person was there.

Now once we advance space travel more, which at the time we dont have the technology to make the journey quicker. Then we could do a space station on Mars. Were just not there yet, its to much of a struggle at this point. cost doesnt equal the payoff

"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." - JFK

There is only two reasons for sending rovers, and man to other planets. One is they know life will become intolerable here on earth sooner than latter. Very, very soon unless drastic changes are made today, which will never happen soon enough. And the other reason is they are looking for the Very Slim Possibility of other life. And if they don't find any sign of life out their they know their days are numbered. Some of you will know what I mean. and I'll leave it at that, because It will only ruffle feathers of other folks.

Remember these Guy's ?? Didn't stop Us did it ---

WHITE

CHAPPY

GRISSOM

If you knew any thing -- about any one of them - and the ground they layed for us the air craft they flew -- you'd take a Knee..

Those were the good day's - monkey's in a can.

They got Flash Fried to Cinder's Theirs film ---- I've listened to the audio -----Haunting - Another congressional budget screw up cost lives. Low Bid Stuff

Bit of home work - you will be thrilled

And the rest said - We are Going to DO THIS !! We Are Going !

I've got a clip on tape the day Scott Cross field blew the living daylite's out of him self

Sitting in the X-15 while throttling the new long over due --Liquid Engine up while anchored on the ground. It kinda fart's - then go's silent - then BLAM !

They found him and the cockpit half of the X- 15 at a minimum of 100 yard's from the anchor point and block house the film was taken.

Snug as a bug in a Rug. Their was nothing left ---------

It was the X-15 that provided the test bed data for the Shuttle's

Need to examine time line's from the X-15 research to the 1st launch of the Shuttle You'd be amazed

It didn't STOP HIM -- and he would not turn it over to the C.J.'s till he new it was ready !!

Then wonder---- what we could be doing NOW in this period of time

Instead of going backwards in technology to an over grown Apollo Capsule or flying some thing that run's on ground up car tires and peroxide.

It's a shame -- pigeon - Sh!t all over the inside of the vehicle assembly building - worse at other location's

Know this - When the budget's and program's were canceled : For $$$ reason's - MONEY DIVERTED FOR OTHER USE'S --their are real live Legislator's voting record's and signature's on the document's. HUMAN"S

Those are Senator's and Congress People whom felt { THEY } needed the money for their own individual private perk program's!!!! over the Need's or progress of the NATION as a whole.

You Never HEAR who stole the Cookies do you ??? and what they washed the $$$ or morphed the sponge-able asset's into of their own whim's.

Bridge to no where type stuff ---

Those are the Congressional Vote's and Signature's of individual's the public need's to see . National Intellectual Theft

Embarrassing Shameful Greedy Self Serving Materialist Individual's
whom put themselves over the Nation for personal profit reason's.

They devastated it - next is the Armed forces -that one is ticking right now and it's HUGE !!!!!!!!
