One-way trip to Mars draws 200,000 volunteers

quote:

A group that's looking for the first Red Planet colonists received applications from more than 200,000 prospective astronauts vying for a spot on a one-way trip to Mars.

The non-profit Mars One Foundation hopes to send teams of four spaceflyers on one-way Mars colony missions starting in 2023. Its initial 19-week application window closed on Aug. 31, with a final tally of 202,586 volunteers.


This is wild. I mean have they seen the movie, Prometheus .

Fox News article

You can google a few others sites about it.

Edit: Prometheus is not about Mars, but its a fuq'd up story about a foreign planet non the less.

For real though. I've never seen a good movie about Mars. I mean I know they are all made up, but still.

Please let them go. Natural Selection.

We are overpopulated.

I think the movie The Purge got it right.

I really hope this happens. Countries don't give a shite anymore about pushing humanity in the right direction and merely care about petty bull shite politics. I wouldn't sign up for this, but its definitely ambitious.

My guess would be more like Aliens.

Gonna have to send some Space Marines up there to go see what the hell happened to 'em.

While it sounds cool, I'd really have to question someone's mental stability and state if they signed up for this. Basically you'd be in a prison smaller than most houses, and beyond in a place uninhabitable by humanity. A lot of people think space is cool, but Gravity got it right in that space is actually terrifying.

Really? How about because it would be the biggest adventure known to mankind? You would forever be remembered. Not everyone wants to live a ho hum life with a white picket fence.

This is the new frontier so to speak. Some wish to explore and there isn't much left on earth.

I would go, but I'm not too sure how feasible it's going to be.
