G-d never changes

It is not important where one is worshipping an unchanging G-d, only that one does. Persueing spritual developement will be as important on Mars as it here.

farfetched voyage

why aim mars with the moon at hand ? How bizarre ! The nasa will need very imaginative story-telling to justify such an absurdity ...

Sukkot on Mars

Yes indeed,human nature is to always dream of distance places.
Yet we got the answer here on earth . Thank you Rabbi Yaakov Salomon to highlight that we got no need to weight 20-30 years to fulfill our dream. A dream that can and will bring us closer to Almighty G-D the creator of Universe .G-D can and will open that window of opportunity if each of us pay bit more attention to spiritual needs ,and not only visual .Spiritual side and closeness to G-D makes humanity flourish.

Out of this world

So how would Kiddush Levanah work on Mars? Would you look at Earth's moon through a telescope, or would you look at Mar's' moon? And which one? For that matter, how would Kiddush Levanah work on EARTH'S moon?
