Could...not...resist...posting!!!



No, this is NOT from The Onion...but it may be the best ClickBait title of all time! It's an article from BGR.com (Boy Genius Report =& gt; BGR). Here is the direct link to the article:

NASA wants to probe Uranus in search of gas

An excellent comment discussion on Yahoo is here.

Oh, and here's a quote from the article:

Quote:
The planets that lie further away from the Sun don’t get nearly as much attention, but they may soon, as NASA is currently spitballing some missions that will give us a better look at Uranus than we’ve ever gotten.


(And no, I'm not responsible for coffee on your keyboard!)

My understanding is that scientists are now hesitant in regard to sending astronauts out for long periods of time, greater than a year, because of the effects of weightlessness and radiation.

It's looking more and more like a manned Mars mission is technologically unfeasible for the foreseeable future.

I've always strongly felt they should use members of Congress for such missions. :)
