2009 Letter by Dean Unick[edit]

The information in this letter needs to be condensed, bulleted, and referenced with footnotes if such information is to be incorporated into the main wiki page. Also to avoid confusing readers disagreements with other 'Mars to Stay' mission proposals should be clearly highlighted, such as: older pioneers, fewer engineers, 90% of the costs "to return explorers." --And why is a "three year" mission even discussed in a one-way Mars to Stay article? Engineers (stone masons mentioned at the end of your letter?) will be needed to build and maintain the settlement (let's not use the word "colony.") "my gut feeling," "something very cold to discuss," " I estimate that" these are not sufficiently encyclopedia-appropriate phrases.... Ericmachmer (talk) 12:39, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

One Way to Mars by George Herbert[edit]

In the introduction is stated that "The earliest formal outline of a Mars to Stay mission architecture was given at the Case for Mars VI Workshop in 1990, during a presentation by George Herbert titled "One Way to Mars."" The reference is broken and the reference I found is from 1996 One way to Mars. Is there any reference from 1990? --JosepVirgili 21:55, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Is this wise?[edit]

  1. Should we consider a mission to Mars without possibility of return before a project like Biosphere 2 has functioned successfully long-term and closed?
  2. Should we consider a mission to Mars without knowing the long-term effects of low gravity life. Will loss of strength in bones continue till settlers can't survive on Earth or Mars?

Do you have a comment about improving the article? Wikipedia is not a forum, and Talk pages are not chat rooms. If you have a verifiable source, consider editing the article to improve it. Cheers. N2e (talk) 23:00, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
