I'm making a report for my school...I have been reading a lot about it...but all I can see is people thinking its good because we learn how to build better stations ;)

I mean...sure...theres a lot of experiments being done up there...but...still...

Post a link or explain to me ;) Please:)

James Oberg (aka JimO here on the BABB) recently wrote an article about this. Have a look at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4624844

That is most possibly one of the coolest presentations I have seen on an extraterrestrial planet. It should be enshrined and posted as a sticky on the Mars forum.

He was a US Senator for a while - that's probably what you remember him from. ;)
