Lot's of reasons to post a link to this article:
- Turns out the depiction of the long journey of the Ares in "Red Mars," was pretty accurate.
- Lends support to the idea that the slow boat to Mars maybe a non-starter. Sorry Zubrin.
- Seems like the least I can do to acknowledge of the suffering of a crew of astronauts confined to a small room for 520 days and then not even getting to see Mars at the other side.
