Now if you think humans have procured Alien tech at some point in time then Bases on the Moon or Mars would be quite easy. If a craft could make it
too earth from another planet a trip to Mars would be like a trip down the street.
For all the people that say they could never keep this a secret. If this is true they didnt keep the secret because we are reading about it on a
1. A $25million low orbit mission, and a $1 trillion mission to Mars are two different things entirely. Considering that the Mars mission is 40,000
times more expensive, I dont think anybody could keep that secret. Even if a couple of billion dollars a year could be syphoned off for such a black
op, it would take 500 years to raise enough money just to send a few astronauts there... let alone build a base!
2. Alien tech. Um, ok. What about a magic broom that could transport us to Mars? Maybe a teleporting device? Even if we had alien technology, we
probably wouldnt have the intellectual capacity to know what it was, let alone use it. It would be like teaching a mouse how to use a computer.
Bottom line, there are a million things one could assume to convince oneself that a Martian base is possible. However, that is not an efficient or
productive way of problem solving. With enough assumptions, anything is possible.
3. When I said that it was impossible to keep a operation such as that secret, I meant that it would be so obvious, that we would learn of it from
reputable news sources.... not "aliendave.com"
