Talk of Mars exploration has always revolved around how to get there and back. What if we eliminated the “and back” part of that equation?
The mission certainly gets cheaper, but what are the chances of crew survival? And would anybody want to go on a one-way trip to a lace more than 35 million miles from home? Sometimes a LOT more than 35 million miles!
Apparently there are thousands of men who would go … and apparently thousands more whose wives would selflessly (or joyfully?) volunteer them up for such a mission.
