Ok, Some of you people here are just so dense, and even with some of your intellects, some of you are just stupid and missing the big picture.
How many Space Agencies would love to have the Title of Being the First to put People on Mars? All of them. USA, Russia, Euro Union, Japan, China
How many currently have plans to do so? All of them.
Its a race that has yet to start but its all developing.
Now as many people, myself included, claim they can, pick things out of Mars photos that look manmade, no one yet has any proof of any current life
there. We know that Mars used to have Oceans and Rivers, if so there is strong possibility that there was life in those waters. Where would the Water
be now? Underground, as proven in Mars photos that show springs forming for no reason. So to send a lander to probe deep underground would have
another mission to look inside the planet for life.
But what is a Side Alternative Prize on going to Mars? To be back on the Moon. Why? Because of a substance they have discovered from Moon Rocks
brought back. Its Helium3. Its from the sun, and is estimated to deliver enough NON-RADIOACTIVE Nuclear Energy that would completely redo our current
nuclear reactors worldwide, and even maybe replace fossil fuel as we use it in abundance today. Except it burns up in our Atmosphere, yet on the Moon
there is no Atmosphere and they estimate the Moon is covered by it. There is a Surface Mining Company in Arkansas who have the plans on blueprints to
put surface excavators on the Moon scooping up this new Element and transport it back to Earth. Whoever gets to the Moon first and begins excavating
will own the business. Along with the Moon being a better platform to get people to Mars than straight lift off from the surface of the Earth.
