Sometime soon one can imagine ‘the’ billionaire du jour announcing a Mars Project. As with anything they do, it will be done right – carefully choreographed with no production expense spared. The multi-year project will cost in the unimaginable billions, and will contemplate great risks, and greater unknowns. The exact reward will be uncertain, but it will be described as without equal in the human experience. The tease of man’s destiny in the stars will be laid bare for us all to aspire to.
