Mission to Mars and $4 a gallon gasoline

    If we can design a safe craft that can fly 440 million miles to Mars, travel through the Martian atmosphere at 12,000 mph, find a parking space and safely land on the surface, why can't we build and mass produce a car that is powered by a renewable energy source?
    Just asking.

    You're comparing apples to lugnuts.

    Yes, it's possible to perform an amazing feat with a single craft at an astronomical cost.

    But mass producing amazing feats at a cost affordable to the average family? Uh, no.

    And I'm not sure you want to call the spaceship a "safe craft." NASA's crafts fail at a much higher rate than a Toyota Corrolla.
