i cant believe i got to do the uranus joke on a gay. he was like hey you know anyone wants to buy a drum kit for 200 eur? i was like 200 eur thats a bargain ill take it, but he meant just the stands, not the actual drums, and then he asked me what planet do you live on?? and i said URANUS BITCH SEE IF I DONT.
But seriously, a manned mission to Mars is sci fi bullshit, there are too many obstacles and NO - they can't just be solved by "improved future technology, lol!"
The trip there is so long [10 months is the current estimate I think...] your muscle mass will drop to about half from the lack of gravity [even with zero-G exercise the whole trip] and when you finally got to Mars you'd collapse quicker than an ApeCat on its dad's couch.
