Wanna Go to Mars Next Year??

Would you ever consider going on vacation to Mars?

I WOULD!!!

Elon Musk (SpaceX, Tesla Motors) announced yesterday that his flights to Mars could begin by early- to mid-2019. WOW!!

Musk also told the crowd at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, that once the infrastructure was set up on Mars, there would be plenty of business opportunities on the Red Planet. "Then really the explosion of entrepreneurial opportunity [will begin], because Mars will need everything from iron foundries to pizza joints," he said. 

So, would you do it? Would you go to Mars? I'd do it in a hot second!! If I could afford it (and who knows how astronomically expensive it'll end up being), I'd absolutely go. It's not like the opportunity to go to space pops up every day (although, with the advent of space tourism, I guess it's about to be a lot more common); I'd absolutely do it if I could!
