Certainly!!! But we donít need to waste money thinking about how we are going to get to Alpha Centari using the fact that we have just found an unlimited supply of rubber bands with which to construct airplane motors. I favor sending men to Mars. I just think the discussion of water being the key is preposterous. Letís work on finding practical ways of doing it rather than running around claiming our wishful thinking overrides physical laws.
