Journey To Mars - Whats the rush?
So I was reading a news article today, and it was all about some MIT students who published a paper stating that the planned mars colony was doomed to fail within 80 days. One of the reason interestingly enough wasn't the lack of oxygen that most people would assume, it was the exessive amounts of oxygen. For those who don't know too much oxygen is actually bad for the human body
. The other primary issue was the long term logistics of maintaining a colony on the planet with support from earth.
I thought it was an interesting Article, you can read it here
I made be ask the question, we are we in such a rush to go to Mars...not only that why are we in a rush to send a bunch of people...
