It would probably take 20 years for the conceptual designs, material selection, laboratory testing of the materials, CAD design, prototype building (a dozen or so), THEN come the lawsuits, Congressional hearings, de-funding, re-funding, de-funding again, re-funding again, route selection, more lawsuits, different route selections ( Repeat ) and finally protestors chaining themselves to everything in the way before the first load of wastes is ready to go anywhere.

Complete Fucking Bullshit.

Like it or not, we have system that DOES control who works here. They want an exception so they can hire cheaper people. Their arguments aren't based on technological superiority, but costs. They fire people and then whine that they have no one and need to import workers

If they want to hire people from outside the U.S, set up shop overseas. Don't bring the Third World here.

So this tool just shit on U.S. workers and claims that people who are essentially nothing but ITT Tech graduates from a third world country are superior.

They are cheaper, more subservient, less likely to push for raises, and are perfectly happy work 60-80 our weeks.

Putting aside the logistics of getting a reactor to Mars (along with a myriad of other things that are currently "put aside") what size reactor/electrical powerplant/whatever would you need in order to provide the same protection from cosmic radiation as does the Earth's magnetic field and atmosphere?

We can predict everything, except the future.
