Good question. With mountains the answer is “because it’s there.” That being said, a lot of people have successfully climbed Mount Everest. Some have died, too. But nobody wants to set up camp and live on the peak, even though the top of Mount Everest is far more hospitable than Mars.
It makes sense to walk on Mars if you buy the argument, “Because it’s there.”
Trying to live there permanently would be suicide.
When I first started this blog I had no idea what I was going to write about. I still don't! It was my wife's idea, you see.
Seems I post about galaxies and space and stuff like that, even though I'm not a scientist. Also I'll write about Linux (my operating system), philosophical meanderings and once in a blue moon I'll express my views on politics.
Sometimes I just write about this and that, just like this!
