Going to the Moon and Mars

James Lileks has a dream that John T. Kennedy, Billy Beck, Tibor Machan, and I dislike. (How's that for understatement!). Rather than restate their arguments, I will mention that I am in total agreement and concentrate on my own vision for going to the Moon and Mars.

Man will return to the moon and go to Mars, on his own dime, by his own toil, guided by his own vision. The trip will cost much less than a NASA, or any other state funded, space program would cost. He will not make the journey only a few times then give up. Most importantly he will need only one reason for doing it - "I want to."
