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.

Astronauts in Training
S&F. Good to fantasize though.
