1st human photographer on Mars

It'll be a chance of a lifetime for sure!!! But no thanks :) My favourite subjects are dogs and there's no dogs on Mars, so I'll pass. LOL
Would I do it for the money and a definite ticket home? Dunno

"50 years ago would have been a one way trip!  LOL " Not necessarily. We went to the Moon, soft landed, and then came back. Similar could have been done, but the trip would have been much longer.

I worked on the Lunar Ranger, Apollo, Skylab, and early Space Shuttle missions. It could have been done, if the backing to do it was there. We just wanted to get to the Moon before Russia and had no backing to go farther back then. Less risky today? Likely much less, but now backing is building to do it, where it didn't exist 50 years ago.

True, but like each 'first' exploration, IF you weight the risks and decided to flip the coin, you would go down in history books.  Heck your photos could be used in the history books.

If they had means of getting off Mars, yeah I'd be all over this.
