This is just more of NASAs push to justify a maned mission at my tax dollar. Same as that chunk of meteorite that came from mars that had evidence of worm hole life (ya right). Create false evidence of the need to fund your frickin career NASA.

I'll support a manned mission ONLY if the spin off technology that the mooned mission created happens again. But I don't see this happening again. This accelerated integrated circuit development, materials science, and rocket development. Pretty tough to find a hole in technology that is required to do this. Anti gravity anyone?? Get that hyperspace drive working! I think the US should sit on it's thumbs and let the EU do this for a change.

We have been and we have the statistics to prove it.

I say let private enterprise do it. This guy wants to spend his own money (and money freely donated)? Let him:

Fine, you may never use nor benefit from the use of velcro again. Enjoy your high blood pressure.

Ten days after aerobraking the Dragon capsule would return again to Earth and reenter at 14.2 km/sec.
