Re: manned Mission to Mars discussion

If you are landing on Phobos, it might be just as good to just stay in orbit. Its no point in digging into a big rock just in order to digg into a big rock. Being on Mars on the other hand, might be slightly better then space since it has good shielding against radiation - at least down in the valleys where the atmosphere-ponds are.
