Since there is some serious consideration in this direction, it appears to be possible.

I'm guessing 2010.

Anyone else?

This maybe the most stupid question of the week but why do we need to do this?

I will remove the 1st & last line of my reply at *Skippy's* request.


THENEO:
It can be construed that your replies have duo meanings. Could be good or could be bad. I'm not sure. So I leave my 2nd line below just in case you mean the latter.

Still bruising from not receiving a TWATS award?

In 6 years time!!!

Seems a little to soon to me, But it does all seem to be moving quickly at the moment..

Im kinda wondering why? Is there a reason we need to start thinking about moving to another planet?

Do we even know enough about it yet...

but 2010 sounds good, wonder how much the first flight to mars will be!!!

Asala,

that is the point, why?

why now?

why the urgency.

would it not be better to stay here and fix earth's problems or are they too far gone...

is something going to happen that they are not telling us..

As i continue to say, this is just so bush can have a legacy.

Reagan had star wars (HAH)
Now bush can have mars.

Hi Questor!!

Based on the evidence of the Moon landings and the specualtion about *when* we'd establish colonies on that, I guess it will be a very long time unfortunately


Because of the "Cold War" there was a "genuine" race-for-space during the 60's (I was alive then and followed it avidly!) but political will - and consumer apathy - led to a reduction in Apollo flights - afterall, if the "mission" was to get a "man on the Moon" by the end of the decade ie 1970, then *why* continue to go back again and again (I realise this is a gross simplification but I hope you see I don't want to go off the thread?)

So, whilst we can applaud Spirit's success (and lick our wounds about Beagle 2) the whole question about "going to Mars" might *never* happen UNLESS there is a political need, fired by the publics clamour, to do so.

I doubt it will happen in my lifetime (probably limited to around 2030, when I'll be 80 years old). Please ask again around 2050 Questor and others will join in with the debate I'm sure!!

I haven't a clue what you are talking about?

Negative?

I guess the truth is negative for most people.

If preserving life is so important it may make more sense to start building the space ark now rather than go to Mars.

No not me in my avatar, I get enough u2us of ppl wanting to chat. I just thought she was hot and used her as an avatar.

Lysergic,

sorry but where I come from if somebody insults you and you fight back then the first person that started it is obligated to solely defend themself and not bring in a buncha punks like their gang to defend them.

where I come from we call those people bullies, cowards and chicken #s.

Could've been a bigger person, but you decided not to go that route, did you?

Instead you have some sort of dellusion that everyone else is like "the man" and you aren't.

Nobody came in to defend either of you in that thread all I said was

Simmah down bitches, take that # to u2us

Sorry for hijacking this thread, deep apologies, last you will hear from me of this in this thread.

Mankind can keeps its filthy behind on Earth. OH MY! I surely hope colonization on other planets is NEVER an actuality for the human race. Squash, Squash and it still won't die!!!!
