  • Obama want's flights to Mars by 2030

    Ok I know this is old news to some but it's new to me. Is there something signifcant about 2030 like is there a window in this year where Earth is closer to Mars than usual or is Obama just grandstanding making a promise that he dosn't have to keep since he won't be in office in 2030?

    He also suggested that he'd make America a carbon-neutral economy by 2040 (or some such date). I'm not anti-Obama by any means, but pinch of salt comes to mind when I hear his more rhetorical speeches!

        Do the public get to vote on a list of people to send on that first manned mission?

        I vote for Tony Blair, David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Obama and the pope.

          Think you can have a whole new thread here, Timberwolf.

          Better adder MIA-MP - Gordon Brown as it will antagonise Blair as well.

            Can I include a lot of Brazilian politicians in this blessed starship ?

            Not a big Obama hater myself, I kind of think he's cool, he just needs to dance with the devil, playing the game to work things out.
