So, NASA says they'll put a man on Mars in 30 years, eh?
How long will it take them to bring him back?
If NASA was ever relevant, they've sure as hell lost it now. Let's hope Scaled Composites and Virgin Galactic kick their dumb, bureaucratic, "30 year old space vehicles that turn into fireballs on re-entry are good enough for us!" asses into the ground.
I'd really like to visit space sometime before I die. If NASA continues to be in charge of space exploration... it'll never happen.
