McCain Wants Man on Mars

John McCain was at a town hall event in Florida when he stated that he would like to see a program where NASA put a man on the red planet:

Presumptive Republican White House nominee John McCain said Thursday he would like to see a manned mission to Mars as part of a “better set of priorities” for NASA that would better engage the public. Breitbart

Rumors that Las Vegas odd makers are giving 100:1 odds that McCain wants that man to be Barack Obama and that he would like the mission to start right after the Democratic Convention have not been verified.

    Sounds great to me..we should have kept going after the Moon. mars has a lot to recommend it..a colony for one, a base to build ships (build in orbit and no gravity well)..and after that, we move into the rest of the system.

    We had Columbus, Hartog, Bass and Flinders, Magellan..now its time to take that next step.
