Tera Forming on Mars

Looks like we have another Mars Rover headed to Mars. NASA is sending this one up in 2020, six years  hence. The purpose of this probe is to continue the search for life . . . really we just need to get boots on the ground for this . . . but it does have one cool instrument. An oxygen generating unit that will look toward generating oxygen from Martian air.

That is plain cool and the right move. Space.

But really we need to get on with it. We need to get some of these folks outside of NASA, plunder them of ideas and start assembling planetary craft that will allow us to visit our neighbors and spread our species beyond the confines of earth.

The universe is vast. Its begging to be explored, calling to us. All those dark, empty spaces are not to vast for our imaginations. No. They can barely contain them.

Its time to leap off the edge and go!
