That was pretty cool. I like how it had the little factoids along the journey.

I would be interested in them creating the same type of thing for other outer space locations, such as where the Voyager spacecraft are currently located.

I just saw a tweet today that said something about how at UW they're working on a nuclear fission rocket that could put the travel time to mars at around 30-90 days, vs. the 9 months or year or whatever it is. They're supposed to start testing it possibly this summer.

That was cool! Thanks for sharing!!

I've now got that line from the original Total Recall in my head:

"Get your a$$ to mars!"
