DAD: <<<to unmars. No?>>>
JL: <<<No.>>>
WB: No. <unmars> would be a Curiosity in and of itself. To further avoid
bastardization of Anglo-Saxon affixes with Franco-Roman deities, we suggest
<to untue>, pron. [@n-too], [@n-tyoo], or [@n-chew], depending on the
pragmatics of your palatal predilections. And so on with the other planets
as well. UnWedn, unFri, unEarth, unTue. Digging on the gas giants gets
unearthly tricky. eJove, esSaturn, exUranus, enNeptune, exPluto, exHaumea,
eMakemake, exEris. And so on ad infinitum through Space, where no man has
dug before. Or robot, AFAWK.
