OK, this ties into the Mars thread and another thread I wrote about the 'purpose' of SF literature (Check SF forum). R. A. Heinlein believed that one purpose of SFnal literature was to promote the manned exploration of space. Additionally, at a con I went to recently, there was a panel with a few members of the Mars Society. And these fellows were virtually in a state of Soma induced ectasy, they believed that President Bush's recent statements about manned missions to Mars were almost the answers to all their dreams.

BTW, Damelon, dude, you crack me up taraswizard
