So, this week I came across this site after hearing the founder of the project on the radio:
And honestly? It sounds too ambitious to me, and I doubt they'll be able to get this of the ground.
On the other hand... maybe an unorthodox approach really is the way to get to the red planet, and they claim they can do it with existing technology. It would be quite amazing if they could pull this off.
But as I'm no expert, any thoughts about the feasibility of this project, or general feelings about the subject?
