Why Humanity won't go to Mars any time soon - its too hard

Fifty years ago, space experts thought we'd be there by now. Here's why we're not. This great article outlines the reasons that we are unprepared, technologically, socially, economically to even consider an attempt to reach Mars in the next few decades.

In other words, the physical, technical, and economic demands of a Martian mission are too great to be overcome in a decade long, Apollo-like sprint. The only solution is to chip away at the problems.

Well worth reading if you at all interested in space exploration, as it applies to all manned efforts in space.
