Ah think he wis quite right. We've been there already - although some fowk still say we huvnae. Eventually wur moon wid be a good stagin post for headin further oot. It's a lot easier tae accelerate a much bigger ship up tae the moon's escape velocity than launchin here oan earth.
So until the munt an resources and hardware is in place tae actually fabricate bases and pit thegithur a big modular space vehicle for gaun tae Mars (probably), whit's the point in wastin billions that could be better spent where it's really needed ie here, rather than on firin up twa or mair tourists tae spend a few days there muckin aboot and then comin back tae a hero/heroines welcome for achieving essentially fuckaw.
Oh aye and robots ur cheaper and better. Google "Mars Rovers" if ye dinnae believe me. The two rovers landed on Mars for a 4 month mission SIX years ago. Spirit is now stuck but the other is still mobile and sending back science.
Ah think ye meant Helium 3 Heidy. Helium 9 decays tae 8He in aboot a zillionth uv a nanosecond. The closest successful fusion reactor tae us is 93 million miles away, it just isnae gonny happen here on Earth.
