People want to go there to have their names in the history books. Books they will be unable to read due to being dead.

Oh.....and it costs 30-someodd bucks too, payable at the time you sign up. Isn't THAT funny.


My thoughts exactly. Humans on Mars probably won't happen without a return vehicle but this Dutch "entrepreneur" is going to rake in a ton of money from all the enthusiastic applicants.

In short it's not going to happen anywhere close to 2022.
Science has promised us many things that are still not ready.
Self driving cars.
AutoPlane
No Cancer.

It's not just Marsnauts and TV dinners. There is a lot more just to keep them alive.
It will take cash and a lot of it for supply missions.
Remember how quickly the public got bored with men on the Moon?

Just imagine the TV plee's for help. "We need money to send food so they won't die!"

Bad Bad idea. Plus a major creep factor to watch that kind of commercial.

Heck, ill still sign up.

You know, even if this is a "One way trip" they will still pick the smart educated PhD's.

Scientists, geologist, microbiologist(yay me), meteorologist, doctors etc

Best bet is to create a bio dome.

But why tho? Really though? WHY...

Spends BILLIONS to do this, but not one good reason why. Don't tell me "oh well to make a new habitable planet and terraform it" bullcrap.

LOL, Calgarian.....indeed. That seems to be the million dollar question that no one can answer.

LOL.

I think that just about sums it up.

I'd do it if my children and husband could go also.

I've always wanted to travel into space, in fact more than anything except maybe time travel but that doesn't seem a possibility yet.

I love earth, I really do it's so beautiful and filled with such wonderous things I would miss so much. But the people ruin it with their hate, anger, pettyness, snobbery, selfishness and on and on.

I would not leave without my family though. So I doubt i'm going. But good luck to those who do.

LOL....yeah.....and there would be NO chance that any of the humans traveling from Earth to colonize Mars would bring ANY of those despicable behaviors with them, right?

This would not be a trip to disneyland. I sincerly hope the people who get picked wouldn't be moviestars, politicians or anyone like that who is filed with such negative qualities. This a mission to colonize Mars and I think or at least hope that the people chosen to go would understand the importance of what they are doing and leave their bad attitudes behind.

Most of the people on earth have forgotten that their was anything special about them. Those who would choose to go to mars would go with the understanding that what they are doing is so much more important than petty differences. They are going to give human beings a chance to survive so in case something happens on earth human beings would still have a fighting chance. I think it would be joy and a sense of a job well done that those people will feel.

Oh my, imagine trusting Corporate Boss's to keep you alive and give you liberty while you work from them far away from our legal system and out of sight of others, though no reason to be out of sight, they can do video/computer linkups but I suppose they won't.......


So imagine being under old man Rockefellers rule of law, living and dying at their command.

Well, unless you trust the Cartel/PTB on this planet.

This is incredible.

And you know what? I'm kinda skeptical about this. Now, I'm not questioning you, OP. Just something that's been bothering me.

Granted, I'm not an astrophysicist, nor do I know the capabilities of our technology with regards to this trip. But it seems somewhat surprising to me that we go from sending a rover to Mars to starting a colony. Isn't that a pretty big leap in technology? Maybe not.

Something just feels wrong about the time-line. I wonder if TPTB are speeding up the Mrs habitat...maybe they know something is coming that will cause Earth to be less than a happy place?

S&F


Well, it would appear to be a huge leap. But remember, the technology required is just now being introduce to us.

To US.

They have long since had this capability, so that's why it seems like a leap.

Just send the most dangerous murderers and rapists and criminals from prisons .. empty them out .. save Earth the trouble ..! Pack them up and ship them .. with regular shipments of more every month ..

Just like how Australia was colonized ..
..ahhh .. good times ...

REALLY, MrWendal? LMAO! I'd give you one week on Mars and you'd be screaming to come home.

Think about it.


Yes really.

And why would you give me one week? Truth is, you don't know me. You are in no position to judge how I would respond to such an atmosphere. I am not saying that to be nasty, just realistic and honest. That would be like me pretending I know how you would react to your 16 year old daughter coming home pregnant.

A chance to get the hell off of this nutcase planet and start anew with a small group of adventurous pioneers ?

You better believe I'd sign up in a friggin heartbeat if I were 20 years younger.

No return trip to Earth ?
Perfect !

Right..

If Earth is any indication, we can barely maintain this planet or keep it sustainable for any living creature, at least wherever we choose to plant our feet.

Seems likely we've already been to Mars, in fact a very long time ago.. and at that time, we indeed asked for volunteers to be the first voyagers to a place called "Earth", to settle it and terraform it. Mars was completely destroyed as time went on... and well, here we are...

Someone would have to have a serious taste for adventure to go on such a mission. Looks cool and it certainly has the wow factor but living in space, traveling in space, landing down on another planet and reside...10 years?

Not sure about that. No, as a matter of fact, I doubt it.

It takes up to no less than 18 months just to train specialists to go on one mission and then come back. And those specialists aren't gone forever, they come back...

The human body reacts entirely in a different way up there. Think of the challenges. Food, security (yes, it you get hurt, your body does not heal the same way), the radiation from space, from another planet plus a thousand things that could go wrong along the way.

Personaly, I think they should retitle to "Volunteers Go To Mars, the Catch? Certain Suicide".

I doubt this would be ready in 10 years.

Living in Space

Astronauts in Training

S&F. Good to fantasize though.

Those who would volunteer to go are truly selfless individuals, and it honestly moves me that anybody would be willing to give their lives (in essence) so that we may colonize Mars and become one step closer in venturing into exploring the cosmos.

Whenever this happens, we should pray for their safety. It isn't going to be an easy ride, or an easy place to live and work, but I'm a firm supporter of NASA and I believe NASA and our scientists will be able to make this happen.

It's amazing to think that, in my lifetime, we would inhabit Mars. It's incredible.

We will just have to make sure the habitant kitchens and bathrooms are all nice and there is a good shoe factory and then the women will want to live there too...

who the hell would want to come back?
