Speaking of going to Mars ... I just hope they put a "base" on the Moon before trying to send humans to Mars. If something goes wrong on the Moon, we might be able to send help within a few days (assuming the craft that took the "originals" their isn't a one-of-a-kind).
If something goes wrong on Mars, it's months before help could arrive. We need to prove we can set up a self sustaining habitat on the Moon before we try doing it on Mars.
Yeah, I'd go help colonize the Moon, too!
I agree with Poopdeck, a bit. If I paid the money to go to space, I'd want the multi-day stay, to really get the feel of free fall for an extended period of time.
