But, on the other hand, if we did send people to orbit Mars without landing...

...it would be a stupid waste of billions of dollars. Humans can't do anything from Mars orbit a machine (specially a 2030s machine) can't do much better. Actually, I'm not a big believer on Mars missions at all. I think the Moon is a better near-term target, and asteroid mining a much better long-term approach. We don't need more gravity wells.

Byte your tongue.
