Just another 5 minutes, stop fucking around back there
The return trip was boring.
No fun facts and blew right by the moon.
BTW, space is fucking huge.
Its like the real Mars landing, you arent supposed to come back.
Problem is you cant stay either.
The Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson makes this argument as well. Initially, a trip to Mars is one way simply because both ways is too much radiation. Now, you can create better shielding, but there's another problem - after an extended period on Mars your muscles and bones would atrophy because you weigh less on Mars, so returning after several years, you would probably be confined to a wheelchair. You might not even be able to keep your head up since your neck muscles wouldn't be used to that kind of weight.
So that is what happened to this fella:
That's why you have to hit the Mar's gym hard. Don't mind me Martian ladies, I'm just going to do a few reps on the bench press with a 1000 pounds.
Dayum...That's a big distance!
1000 lbs? Bro, do you even lift?
You should see me leg press on mars. School buses bro.
Mars is 15 seconds away?
