Re: Mars One - Unethical?

Cryogenic fuel storage is vastly easier than building a giant rocket to meet NASA specs, which in any event aren't scheduled to fly until sometime near 2030 in the block II configuration, and will only have a cargo launch about once every other year.

In an Orlando Sentinel article today, Lori Garver said the SLS is going to have some major schedule slips.

Chris Kraft has been really slamming the program, saying "So what you've got is a beast of a rocket, that would give you all of this capability, which you can't build because you don't have the money to build it in the first place, and you can't operate it if you had it."
