I am quoted in a recent story, “Americans Will Never Make Mars A Priority. Why Should That Stop Us?” by Rebecca Boyle on the FiveThirtyEight blog on the potential for the human exploration of Mars. You can find this story here. Among other things I note, “Everybody likes this stuff, but nobody wants to pay for it.” My skepticism is present thereafter when talking about a human Mars mission. I hope I am wrong. Please tell me how I have missed something. Anyway, check out the story. It deserves a good readership.
