Yep, if you doubted me, that Yelp review has Earth pegged for exactly what it is.

Thanks for the link.

Well, now I know where I'll spend my next holiday.

I wonder what littlewitness has to say to that.

Are you talking about human flight? It looks like you are new to the technical sciences. The flight neither to the moon nor to Mars is physically impossible today and many more long years for technical reasons.

Default Moon vs. Mars

We of the human race don't respect the planet we live on now. We don't respect each other, what the hell are we gonna do, move through the galaxy like quarreling parasites?
We have a long way to go in the attitude department before colonization of another planet should even be considered. So we better get our ducks in a row because I heard Joel Bourne say we will be standing shoulder to shoulder by 2050, and the planet will be glowing red hot with the electricity consumption.

Well, if neither is physically impossible, then what's holding us back? I guess it is just money then. To the moon Alice, to the moon!

Ben Rich, former CEO of Lockheeds Skunkworks once said that we have the technology to travel to the stars, but it is locked up in black SAPs that would require an act of God to be released and used.

So, Yes, its about the money, but not in the way most assume. The energy industry and ultimately the entire economy would crumble overnight if these technologies were put to use.

The moon first as a stepping stone to Mars.

I think the psychological conditioning would be the toughest part. The mechanics of it is possible today.

Settling our solar system I think would be a big boost to why humans are here. Broaden our horizons for the next generation.
