How can we justify going to Mars?
All too true is that the vast masses of souls on Earth
have their focus on the path of their daily lives lying there between their
toes. It takes LOTS of carnage on
TV news to get them even to peek up and around at the rest of the world all
around them, much less have the curiosity or the inclination to look up into the
stars at night and go Wow
Many American souls think of space scientists as
pocket protector nerds playing with half-billion tonka trucks that either
dont work at all, dont work right, or dont work for very long. [yes I
KNOW Pathfinder-but MCO n MPL 2 so
many others, Ive said before that ALL Space enthusiasts must become less
acrimonious with each other, for we ALL want the same thing. To get US, you n me, humans
out there, in ever larger
We must work together to find a way to justify a
way to get humans to Mars, and BEFORE the end of THIS decade!
IT CAN BE DONE ! So many
others say, and so many STILL believe, that the ONLY way humanity will get there
is through a government funded effort through
taxes on the back of Joe n Jane 6 pack. It
doesnt HAVE to be that way. The
Undroit Convention makes it possible for COMMERCIAL enterprises to be funded
based on equity of equipment when completed.
is POSSIBLE ! We merely have to find a few billionaires WILLING
to start the process by putting forth relatively little funding as seed
buck-a-roos to begin building the hardware to get us there.
Which billionaire wants to be the FIRST MODERN HUMAN to land on Mars?
Mr. Tito, care to step forward, once more into the breech?
If it were possible for our Department of Defense
contractors to commercialize the very BEST of their efforts to customers OTHER
than the DOD, Space commercialization and Space Tourism would become a reality
in THIS decade for THIS generation. We have the know-how, we have the
financing outlined, we have the few dedicated dreamers and pioneers [ THANK YOU
MR. TITO ! AND THANK YOU PEOPLES OF RUSSIA ! ! ! ]. But do we have the
collective will power to take the leap from the cradle and to once more walk
among the stars?
theres STILL a Smoking Pyramid in
and ya know what?
It's STILL Smokin'...
That alone should qualify Cydonia as a PRIMARY landing
site for one of the 2003
Mars Rovers. In addition to the ever lingering questions many people
will STILL have about the mesa that is, in reality, waiting to be named as
The Martian Mount Rushmore...or Martian Mount
Which Billionaire around the world would like to be
the first to take
a hike to the top? And from the top, could they discern which name
would apply? Who wants to try?
I see all the pieces to get us there laying out there
in the world. Who has the cajones or ovaries to step forward and commit
themselves to taking a hike on that enigmatic hill, and to take a sample of that
vaporous emanations from a hole in the side of a Pyramid shaped hill?
