Greg I too gave up on the Mars Society for similar reasons. They
seemed to be far too interested in flags and footprints missions.
To be fair to them: I lurked and said little, so I blame myself. From
reading the level of discussion there, I didnt think they were ready
to think about nanotech, or even the notions I posted here about
sending a single young woman with a bunch of frozen embryos on
a one way trip. spike
