I only sort-of saw this, really…I say “Sort of” because…The Republikid and went to the local IMAX theater and it turned out they were showing a 45 minute cut of a 90 minute movie. That actually worked out to our advantage, though, as both of us thought the movie was pretty bad and 90 minutes would have been more than we could stand.

Mars or Venus: Which is a Better Home for Humanity's Future?

Here at Republibot our mandate is to ask questions that no one else is asking; ideally the painfully obvious ones that no one even *thinks* to ask. To that end, I have to think it’s well beyond time to question what the appropriate focus of our manned space program should be: Mars, or Venus? The common wisdom, of course, is “Mars! What the hell is wrong with you? Why would you even ask such a thing?” But of course the Common Wisdom is Common simply because no one ever questions it, not because it’s inherently right. We’ll discuss the Pros and Cons for each planet under the jump.
