I think a half million is the flashpoint for getting to mars.

Mars: Why Wait?

Bob Zubrin explains that many of the excuses being used for why we should wait on a trip to Mars (i.e., we need better rockets to cut down the trip time) are invalid: if we had those better rockets, orbital dynamics still mean we’d probably keep the trip time the same, we would just take more with us.

The Spirit rover on Mars is finally dead. Hopefully one day soon we’ll be able to visit it in person.

This seems appropriate.
