    Patrick, the Mars mission is over 15 years away and more likely, over 20.  I
    suspect the robot will be remote controlled but yes, complicated.

    ust a thought but I find it odd that we are not sending another crew to HST
    because of crew safety concerns yet continue to plan a (IMHO more dangerous)
    piloted mission to Mars.
