I absolutely love this idea. Let's get crackin'!

Alrighty, then! Let's just strap about 37 JATO bottles to the rig, point it towards Mars, and GO!

Uh, 'course, don't try atmospheric breaking or orbital gravity slingshot swings around planets--might cause some internal discombobulation, like a PikUp Stix bundle being tossed against a wall, thus flying apart in a most undecorous manner...

The ISS is not sheilded enough protect it from interplanetary solar radiation and cosmic rays for such a long journey to Mars and back. The author seems to forget that the ISS orbits earth well within the protection of the earths magnetic field

The advantage of flying electric RC helicopter does not end with these five points. With new technologies becoming available, these aircrafts are improving at surprising speed. All in all, it is not hard to see why electric RC rc helicopters is the fastest growing field of RC hobby. So theDS is multitalented, but it doesn't do any one thing quite as well as dedicated devices do. It's still, first and foremost, a game machine. Its game library continues to grow, and while it doesn't have as many diverse a selection as the Nintendo DS, its AAA titles look spectacular.
This makes Micro Flashled ideal for hunters, hikers and campers for illuminating charts, pathways, menus, instruments, emergency lighting. It becomes indispensable for utility workers, military and police tactical operations, for cabin lighting while driving at night, keyhole illumination or just about any situation where a small powerful flashlight can come in handy. Its highly bright light focused in a criminal's eyes can cause dizziness in a few seconds.
