Pam is a better long term choice for NASA but Cliff is a better short term choice for society.
Can we volunteer someone else? I’ve got a list.
We already have that. It’s called a prison.
No, sign Cliff up, y’all could use a break from him.
Sounds like the lockdown during the pandemic.
So the habitat’s not going to be civilized?
I have stronger opinions that you and I I’m going to … Drat! I deleted my Twitter account last month. [actually true, although I hadn’t used it in years].
Sometimes you just need the right incentive at the right time.
Covid-19 was a training run. I think a lot of us are ready to go.
“… whereupon he was taken away, locked up, wrote a book and was finally sent into tax exile, which is the usual fate reserved for those who are determined to make fools of themselves in public.” Douglas Adams had a lot of good ideas.
Farcebook is real good for this too.
Will a Mars habitat really be that cut off from civilization? It’s only about 15 minutes away for radio waves. Seems like you’d have a slow connection to the internet, but you could still have one.
Because of the radiation, people will have to live underground on Mars. Ever notice how few people on Earth choose to live underground for any extended period of time? Even remote duty at places like Antarctica is not popular. So, why do people think they would enjoy living on Mars where simple things like, oh, you know, OXYGEN can be hard to come by? The ONLY advantage to living on Mars would be the lower gravity. Living underground on the Moon would provide all the “advantages” of living on Mars, with even lower gravity.

If NASA could pay for a premium Comic Kingdom subcsription, you could spend the year reading reruns of Safe Havens.
i’d go with her
Unfortunately Pam, there are going to be Cliffs where ever you go.
But why would they take volunteers from the RU Stratus? They already have that experience, theoretically.
oh, you don’t have to know anything to have an opinion
Sort of like the Biosphere II experiment. A year of isolation and a six month supply of air.
I’ve got a thing for Pam; I’ll go, if she goes!
Is his name Trump?
