NASA just announced that water is on the surface of Mars. One would think we would just send either the Curiosity rover or Opportunity rover (both are currently on the surface of Mars) to investigate the area. However, NASA actually can't. Why?
An entrepreneur with more money than God has decided that he wants to be one of the first men to complete a mission to mars. And while this space crusader with deep pockets may have the cash flow to pull of such an ambitious undertaking, some believe that he may have spread himself too thin by announcing plans to get his journey underway by 2018.
