Won't go into the scatological details, but I really wonder what the fundamentalists will think of funding space travel with NASA's attitude. As quoted in the review: "NASA, she learns, doesn't expect a celibate Mars crew, but one that will 'mix and match or whatever.'" -- [which makes me wonder if the fundamentalists will stop funding for what's left of the space program.]
PS: Which I did, but caused other color problems I don't like.
