In Pictures: What is so infinitely cool about Mars?

Interest in exploring the Red Planet is at an all-time high -- from millionaire private space-goers to world-wide space programs and scientists

As part of the Mars Inspiration announcement, the foundation released a white paper that goes into great detail about the feasibility of such a mission. From the paper: A manned Mars free-return mission is a useful precursor mission to other planned Mars missions. It will develop and demonstrate many critical technologies and capabilities needed for manned Mars orbit and landing missions. Investments in pursuing this development now would not be wasted even if this mission were to miss its launch date. Working on this mission will also be a means to train the skilled workforce needed for the future manned Mars missions.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
