Check out the site.

Earth has issues, and it's time humanity got started on a Plan B. So, starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars.

I have a three word reply to this post -- April Fool's Day.

Google’s extravagant hoax, which includes pages of explanation and a YouTube video featuring Messrs. Brin and Page discussing the project, is not the first April Fool's ruse for the search king.

The Mountain View, California-based firm's April Fool's stunts date back to 2000, when the company unveiled MentalPlex, a search technology that "reads" the user's mind to determine the query subject.

In 2005, Google unveiled the Google Gulp, a drink that could expand one's intelligence, and in 2007 Google introduced Gmail Paper, a free service that would convert email to print and send the letters via snail mail.[url=]Source

Google is famous for it's annual April Fools pranks (aside from being a known for being a 'pretty good search engine'). This has certainly been a fine example of their annual effort.

They should have called it Googin.

I'd have believed that!
