Re: MarsDrive Is Coming

Just a note to let you know that our new site will be up in a little while, and no, we are not just another space organization. I never did like the plethora of sites and groups who had no real content or clue on how to make their dreams a reality. MarsDrive is about hard work and making our dream of going to Mars a reality, one step at a time. At present we have a sub heading on the Red Colony website, but stay tuned for more...(Any questions are welcome)
http://www.marsdrive.com/
This is just a coming soon page, for more detailed info go the Red Colony website. Thank you.

Re: MarsDrive Is Coming

And just another few thoughts. I know there are many groups that come and go, many that claim fantastic goals but have no real way of making them happen, and many that misrepresent themselves and try to go it alone. Such groups are only as good as the people in them, and so it is with all space groups, even the Mars Society of which I am a part. Now if Robert Zubrin were to announce that the Mars Society planned on going to Mars with a definite timeframe/costings etc I believe that many people would still not take it seriously. The simple fact is this- If anyone wants to go to Mars privately they are going to need lots of people(the right kinds of people), lots of money, and lots of time. Most space advocates want a quick fix but that is just not going to happen. The issues involved in a private Mars shot are extremely complex to say the least and will take alot more than just a few dreamers putting up a website or starting a group. MarsDrive is about tackling all of these issues one by one in a no nonsense fashion until we reach our goal. I invite all members of other groups to stay in their own groups and at the same time to consider joining us(and yes, it's free). Your talents and abilities will make a difference whatever they may be.
