Sorry, gave up reading this thread after page 4, so maybe someone else has posed this.
Why, all of a sudden, is Mars the place to visit, with ideas of one-way journeys, hopping rovers being mentioned in the press, etc etc.
What's there that is so important, that the expense is justified, especially as the moon, so much closer, has still to be thoroughly investigated for
what it can provide?
What is on the moon we do not like, yet on Mars we do like?
