People will oneday be able to go to the Moon and Mars for holidays, it will become possible in about 70 years time.

In 10 years time the 3 space nations Russia America and China will compete with each other to see which one of them can be the first country in the world to send astronauts to land on Mars, when it does happen it will be alot bigger then the Moon landing.

I personally think that it will be China that will be the first to do it, because oneday China will be the new world power and one day Chinas technology and space agency will overtake Americas and the rest of the world.

if that's the case it would surely be one of the tourist spots in the whole universe..i think it would be very eciting to be entertained by aliens..but the possibilities are endless, so let's just wait and see..

The Americans and Russians have made more strides in space though so it remains to be seen. The again China might with a bit of luck get ahead but I cant see it happening TBH!

China could well do it as I suspect their government won't care as much about what happens to the people it sends up, eg: radiation sickness. The Americans and even the Russians now would want to be very careful not to lose anyone on a mission like that otherwise it would scupper the entire programme. Then again, if the Americans are having trouble with their shuttle I doubt they'll be the first to manage this.

Personally i think we are better off waiting for the Russians to develop their program. after that has been done successfully, we can go with what marketers call the me too strategy. Basically copy their product. Let them take all the major risks in trying to figure out how to work this program. After they have figured out the risks and precautions need to be taken we can then launch our program. while we will miss out on the initial group of space tourists, we will make up for it by offering better quality and reliability in the US space travel industry. Me too products always tend to out sell the original. Good example, XM and SIRIUS satellite radio. XM is in the lead right now but eventually SIRIUS Will just over power it.

I dont think that Russia would be capable of doing it although they will try very hard though. Russia simply does not have the technology and they dont have the money.

I thank your time frame is off, More like 170 years for the holiday traveler.
And as for as the first manned mars mission goes that time frame may be a little closer then 10 years, NASA has been at the drawing board working out the manned mars mission for quite some time now.
Nanotechnology put NASA back to the drawing board with a new team of engineers working around the clock.
NASA's biggest fall back on mars be for Nanotechnology was how to build a space craft that could house one million on board computers, and that is just a small part of the overall engineering nightmare.
Radiation will be the hardest of all the engineering nightmares, They know that the first manned mission will fail, but failure can be the best teacher.
