1Robert WahlerSounds pricey. Where does the $$$ come from? Interesting idea. Kind of an 'Everest for all the people'.Mine will be a redo if the NGS Gospel of Judas debacle. They missed the entire message of self-sacrifice with their 'go-Jesus' panel. -Bob W.
Robert Wahler asks:Michael J. MalloyThe main purpose of the expedition is to learn something about the geology, building techniques, and the Tibetan people. It is not to actually build the project. I may find it’s physically feasible but not economically viable. You just don’t know until you explore the options. The cost will likely be in the hundreds of millions of dollars; however, if tourism were embraced by the Chinese and Tibetan Leaders, then it may become economically viable. If so, then funding may become available.
