Let's Get Some Mars (January 2011)
You read all about the pros and cons (and, don't forget, the impossibilities) of a mission to Mars in this month's article, "To Mars or Not?" Now it's time for you to weigh in. When do you think humans will make it to Mars? What will it be like when we get there? Think sensory: touch, smells, sights, sounds (?), tastes (??). Or should we just forget about it and concentrate on our own planet?
And if/when humans do achieve a mission to Mars--are you going to be on that space flight?
