The U.S. has plans for a manned visit to Mars by the mid-2030s. The ESA and Russia have sketched out a similar joint mission, and it is claimed that China’s space program has the same objective. Apart from their destination, all these plans share something in common: extraordinary danger for the explorers. What happens if someone dies out there, months away from Earth?

    No burial if HAL is the ship’s main computer. “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

    You have to airlock them, obviously. A burial at sea for the space-faring age. And you know what all these plans have in...

    Now on my to-do list: - Live to see this. - Publish my comic that occurs on Mars before this.
