Mars ain’t gonna be easy’: What Apollo 17 leaders are saying about future space exploration

“Mars ain’t gonna be easy,” Schmitt said during the panel. “There are a whole bunch of operational issues related to not only landing on Mars, but also working on Mars, that we really need to work out closer to Earth, and the moon is a place to do that.”

All Apollo astronauts have long supported this idea of using the moon as a “stepping-stone” to Mars, Head added. Now that President Donald Trump has signed his Space Policy Directive 1, which directs NASA to prep for crewed Mars missions by first sending astronauts to the moon, it seems more likely that their wish will come true. However, some members of the space science community have expressed doubt in Trump’s ability to make such an ambitious goal come to fruition.

How one-year mission affected astronaut’s health

Anyone that believes some day mankind will permanently inhabit Mars must be sniffing too much Space Dust.

Can a trip to the Red Planet be achieved???  Possibly but the odds against it are tremendous. One organization doesn’t seem to think so.

Scott Kelly is living proof of what stress and changes the body goes through with extended time in space.

Scott experienced declining bone formation, but levels of a healing hormone that helps with bone and muscle health increased, most likely due to all of the exercises astronauts perform in space every day to combat bone and muscle loss. His levels of the stress hormone cortisol remained normal, but he had a spike in inflammation soon after landing on Earth — most likely because of the stress of re-entering the atmosphere.

His mission was relatively simple. All he had to do was float around in space for a year.

For the ultra-adventurous people that want to go the Mars; according to NASA, a vessel with humans on it would take roughly six months to travel to Mars and another six months to travel back from Mars. In addition, astronauts would have to stay 18-20 months on Mars before the planets re-align for a return trip. In all, the mission would take roughly 2 1/2 years.

Mars is 34.7 million miles from Earth. I don’t know about anyone else but I get antsy in a car after about 3 hours let alone a six month trip with a bunch of strangers. It would take less than a week before they wanted to kill one another.

It pretty well sums up my opinion on getting  to and settling on Mars. We have enough problems on Good Old Mother Earth to take care of before we start sticking our noses where they do not belong.

Anyone that really believes that mankind can establish life on Mars must be


That is not the good part. Put this in your joint and smoke it:


How much does it cost to go to Mars per person?
Musk estimates the cost of getting 12 people to Mars to start a colony is about $10 billion per person.
Are you shitting me?? IFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF we sent 10 people on the mission, I reiterate IFFFFFFFFFFFF, that is 100 billion dollar$!! Are you shitting me!!!  Put that 100 billion to work on getting these wacked out earthlings in line before looking to the stars. Has anyone noticed; Mother Earth and us earthlings are in deplorable condition!!!!
