Street Beat: Do you think the U.S. should try to send a manned mission to Mars?

"I think they should. We'd get about the same kind of technological benefit as we did to the moon."

Mike Gallaher

"Considering that it was warmer on Mars last week than in New York City, I think they ought to."

Cindy Reyes

"Well, I'm kind of torn. I think they should, because space exploration is a good thing. But the country is having a hard time money-wise, and it's kind of a frivilous expense. So it's yes and no."

Dallas McElhannon

Joseph

"No, because I don't see a reason for it. It's too far away to be of any future good to us. There's a lot of things we could be using our money for rather than going to Mars."

Carol Harshman

Joseph

"With our economy the way it is right now, we ought to be concentrating on our problems on Earth. But in the long term, it's a good idea."
