MARS!

I'm typing this with Hannibal's help because I'M JUST SO EXCITED.

By 2035, humanity could be heading to Mars! AHHH SOMEONE HOLD ME DOWN!

I just read the news on reddit, then went looking for more info on Twitter and google and and and I just can't I'm so HYPED hdjsjwisbrriwnimzbccajaisjs.

I mean yeah I'll be 40-ish years old when it happens and a lot could delay or even (nuhhhh) cancel the mission, but I can't help but be hopeful. And how long will they be there for? Will they hear the message from Carl Sagan? How many of them will be relatively young--say in their 30's? Making them just teenagers now!? Imagine growing up your whole life preparing just for that...@-@

Ahhhh. I'm so excited. And happy. And now I'm not going to be able to sleep.

"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
- Carl Sagan, in his message to future explorers of Mars.
