Fix the spelling, and explain how a box with a solar panel on it is "pleasant looking"
Like anyone will go to Mars before 2050 anyway. Dealing with our own planet is hard enough, and people are realising that. I was hoping for people on Mars by 2020, and a few years ago by 2010, but there are so many issues, both PR and technical.
The Chinese will get there first. They don't seem to mind losing a few people to get somewhere. It happens when you are exploring. People die in accidents. I didn't notice that no-one ever died sailing the seas over the last few centuries exploration. Of course, when it looks like the Chinese are going to get there, then America will try and get there, but this time it will be too late...
Of course, I don't want to be an explorer.
