Really, how does nobody but me question this? Not necessarily the timeframe to get to Mars, but the distance aspect of what we have been told forever? If it is true and their distance stats are true, how in the hell minus some kind of faster than light speed travel could we possibly make it to Mars in a little over a month? Once that satellite was launched and made it out of the solar system, this made me question this over and over in my head! Our supposed distances of our own solar system have to be waaaay off for us to be able to achieve this in the time they are saying!
Does this not add up to being completely lied to? Unless they thought this to be true and if so, how isn't everything they have said a lie? Like the size of planets, weights (not to mention how a weight of a planet would be calculated) and much more...This just stinks of being completely lied to about how far away from us things in outer space actually are....
