Going to Mars without a political and scientific road map parallel to the technological plan is irresponsible.
– the first human martians, how long will it be before their new country declares independence from eath’s laws and poltics? do we know what we are doing here or will just improvise and resolve this with wars once again?
– are we just stepping in blindly and disrupting the local geology, history or even ecosystems that might exist. Once again?
I love the idea that we are going to mars, but all I hear is about rockets and fuel. nothing about politics or environment. we need a more adult conversation that rockets. soon.
