Re: NASA finds Masses of Water on Mars !!!!! (Southern Man)
1. I don't have the number of lumens handy. And am certainly not going to research it and calculate in some efficiency percentage. But solar panelss could be delivered by cargo ship to the landing site months in advance of the arrival of any humans as could any other supplies. So not only could the panels get there ... the six month requirement is a red herring. One might not even send the astronauts until the fueld for the return trip was already present.
4. You get more energy ... but as no process is 100% efficient ... in the end you always lose.
5. What do you mean "wishful thinking" it was hydrogen and oxygen that got us to the moon. It will be hydrogen and oxygen that will get us to Mars. Why, all of a sudden, is it inadequate for getting us back?
