Mars One will start the Astronaut Application Program in the first half of 2013. Even before the official start of the application program, Mars One has already received more than one thousand emails from people who desire to be one of the astronauts to live on Mars in 2023.
Once on Mars, there is no means to return to Earth. Mars is home. A grounded, deep sense of purpose will help each astronaut maintain his or her psychological stability and focus as they work together toward a shared and better future.
Within the settlement are inflatable components which contain bedrooms, working areas, a living room and a 'plant production unit', where they will grow greenery. They will also be able to shower as normal, prepare fresh food (that they themselves grew and harvested) in the kitchen, wear regular clothes, and in essence lead typical day-to-day lives.
Where's your sense of adventure guys? Just because something might not work doesn't mean we shouldn't try it

NOOOOooo way , not me...
If mars had a atmosphere where one could
grow food, tree's, and such, then i would consider
such a idea a good one,
but i see this as nothing more than sending people to
It's just a matter of time before they run out of supplies.
then what? not like you can go build a cabin in the woods
and hunt for your food and rough it... there is nothing
I see this as a waste of money. Would be a much better idea
to save the cash and when we find a planet that has a atmosphere
that can support life, as well as running water, tree's for oxygen
then send a group there, at least they would have a fighting chance
This is just a death sentence for them... there is no real way
to sustain them for long term. What the company is going to
send up a rocket every year with supplies?
Our govt cant even keep people fed here on earth, where food
is abundant, i would not think a company could keep a team fed
and healthy that far away.

How do you think it will play out? Will anyone from ATS be applying?
I can't seem to wrap my head around it. How long will their supplies last? What will they do for shelter? How much communication will they have with Earth? Will they reproduce on Mars? It's fascinating!
