    The plan is to land there in 2030. Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing and we will celebrate that accomplishment. Now tell me something. In your opinion was it worth it and why wouldn't a Mars expedition likewise be worth it?

    Your're the one who brought up MRE's I just asked if you knew how well they worked in a zero gravity environment. Obviously you don't but instead of admitting it you have to respond with a pointless remark.
