So give proper credit and your good to go... k
As far as the debate of the last few pages, lake or not a lake...
I see only one thing in these images, conclusive and absolute proof of need for a Manned Mission to Mars as a Major National priority. Definitive
proof, definitive answers at this point not to IF we can colonize the planet but how we should do it.
Is it viable as an another Earth? capable of sustaining 20 million transient visitors and supply many resources or can it be terraformed. Is there
enough atmosphere for______
These debates are fun, worthy of discussion.
But it is obvious that the planet can be manned and made useful... the degree to which we can do so doesn't much matter, it's time for serious
A permanent base, a shuttle system that can go back and forth multiple consistent trips every year like the space shuttle program and nothing less
should be accepted by us.
I have indeed been a bit out of the loop from what I am seeing now, the one debate that is no longer disputable is that a permanent presence and
traffic system to and from Mars is mandated from what we are seeing.
