I've never done the hard core rock climbing but was in a few semi-dicey spots in the Cascades in WA state. There's a great climb up the so-called Asgard Pass to the Enchantment Lakes that offers few...

Yup. And to leave Mars' gravitational well will require a great deal more boost then was required to lift off from the moon. Now all we need to do is to figure out how to take a 2 stage rocket with...

Or they will attempt to do so, at great expense, not just in terms of private money, but in terms of resources on earth approaching greater and greater scarcity.

It is certainly true that it would easier to service something in space than having to land on the moon to do so. I must confess I'm not that up on the degenerating orbit thing. Could well be that...

I see. You don't, in fact, understand why terraforming Mars is doomed to failure.
