Bookies offer heavy odds against Mars landing Reuters

If U.S. President George W. Bush is serious about sending a man to Mars, he can put his money where his mouth is and win a fortune. Bookmakers William Hill said on Thursday they were offering 50/1 odds against a man walking on Mars by December 31, 2030. Bush announced plans on Wednesday to send humans back to the moon as early as 2015 and eventually to Mars.
