This is a minor point, but I beg to differ. It's just that I am very
tired of seeing "Mars" be the first thing that springs to people's
lips when space development is discussed. I've already lived at the
bottom of a large gravity well for a few decades, and I don't think
I'm going to be eager to get into another one as soon as I get out
of this one.
