Re: Obama Space Plan: Return to Moon: "No Go"

Launching from Mars is the real problem which needs to be overcome. Getting off the moon when we went there was relatively easy, but Mars has a significant gravity well; and you know how complicated an Earth launch is.

What this means is that we need to get some infrastructure over there first, which means automated construction at least to a degree.
