Re: manned Mission to Mars discussion
Don't get me wrong guys. I am just very confident that all other challenges like better propulsion, more accurate landing system and ISRU, etc can be solved more easily because they are purely engineering challenges unlike the radiation risk which will probably involve quite a bit of non-technical subjective judgments. By that account I am actually an optimist for a manned mars mission.
