By that logic, would they also acquire my debt?

Show me where to sign up!

Also this is fascinating, after reading the entire thread, I had to add would definitely take an adventurous spirit to want to take this trip and a sturdy mind to be able to withstand the stresses and just the mind-blowing reality of being alone and trapped in space and then alone and trapped on Mars for the rest of your life. Also, it will be weird to realize that you didn't know the people you were going to Mars with. I can, however, see the benefits of attempting to colonize Mars, or at least trying to send people there. But in order for it to make sense to capitalists there has to be an economic gain, so we will probably figure out something to mine there, or maybe just send all our garbage and nuclear waste from Earth to there or something mundane such as that. I can see the interest in being one of the first people to see and touch Mars though, outside of the history books thing. There's just so much that we don't know that we could learn by sending people there. And as far as people losing interest in going to the moon, I am actually very interested in people going to the moon, I know a lot of other ATSers would allow tune in if people were going to the moon.

Why? Australia has turned out pretty good. I reckon a mix of convicts (if anything, they would see it as a second chance) and nutters (eccentric people have really great left field ideas) and a few normal (whatever normal might be) seems to be a great way to get the ballrolling on Mars.

Actually, I might even have to look into this a bit more. What a way to finish off a full life here on earth ................. go to another world and experience what some 7 billion individuals will never experience.

Just have to make sure they supply cyanide capsules or something so if things go pear shaped, there would only be a few seconds of pain and discomfort. Because the death side of things ain't too bad, we all have to go there some day, it's the potential pain. It's one of my biggest allergies

Um, death by cyanide lasts minutes, and on a full stomach potentially hours, and is rather painful.
They always use it as the go to poison because it usually ensures death.

and I was actually thinking about this about a month ago. We easily have the technology to send people to Mars, the problem is, returning would be near impossible. Gravity would be much higher there, so leaving the atmosphere would be very difficult.
If we really wanted to, we could have a man on mars in 6 months time. There'd just be no return.

There will be no trip to Mars soon...period.

Will there possibly be "settlers"? Maybe.

Movie set out in the desert someplace.

I have no doubt they will "never come home" either.

For all those interested I would suggest an experiment first:

Lock yourself in the bathroom for as long as you can. Say it a week? A month?
It's going to be million times worse than that.......

IF this happens... We will witness the first suicide off Earth, the first mental collapse off Earth, possibly even the first mass suicide off Earth.

We are not psicologically prepared to endure such a one way trip within such conditions... Lack of vital space CAN kill you, not to say many other ifs..

It's easy to say I'd go when you're here.

You do realize how much technology is suppressed? All of you said is possible, autopilot, cures for cancer, etc.... but do you honestly believe they would release them?

Most of what you see in movies is already possible, trust me. The best technology are only reserved for those who have the power to take it.

OK then whatever cocktail they gave to my old german shepherd. He didn't look like he suffered and it was quick. But you get my drift. An amazing last life experience concluded with a less than painful death. And to the poster who reckons there would be mass suicides, maybe, maybe not. I sure wouldn't mind giving it a shot as long as my "allergies, ie pain" were accounted for : ) Heck I'm 60+ that means the last little bit of my life would be serving a purpose instead of wasting the air down here. Wouldn't even mind sharing the experience with what people would consider the not so wanted on our planet like murderers, rapists, thieves, politicians, lawyers, religious believers and heck, why not, even muslims. There ya go, talk about tolerant

just re read your post ghost, isn't the gravity less on mars? just sayin. so we'd even end upbeing strong men up there able to bound over a locomotive like a speeding bullet

Just as a matter of er................oh yeah, interest. What would such 'Volunteers' do for food and water???? And maybe Oxygen would be handy. Just imagine where do they take a shower? And no doubt the Thunder Box would act like a compost heap.....

This is how depopulation begins...dumping people on Mars.

I don't know why it's funny, but it is.

Get marooned on a barren, rocky planet with nonbreathable air. Talk about a catch to end all catches for someone weighed down by the chaos and negativity pervading Earth.
Even to someone with escapist urges who loves that kind of landscape, the trip and subsequent colonization task sounds too boring and physically uncomfortable for consideration. Assuming I qualified.

No hesitation ill go no drama. But everyone back on earth has to understand IF i go the land i claim now is all my land. I would not mind owning a large portion of mars.

The second we step on the the surface Earth laws do not apply, as there will be no way of enforcing them, The new colony will be called Neon Federation.

Good luck and see you all on the flip side.

The power of any yourney is the knowledge in the back of the skull , that some day you will reach the place it all started : Home

I always thought the missions to mars were about it being in case we need to escape our planet. Eventually we will have to escape for one reason or another.

Don't they have colonies already set up on earth that mimic mars? There are are mars simulation laboratories that are being tested. Seems its the most suitable planet we earthlings could survive on.

I have no interest in dying on Mars.. Sounds horrible. I don't think you can go outside in the atmosphere or temperatures there. You would go crazy. My guess is the people who go will commit suicide there.

These are the people that applied
Mars One

Oh I didn't see right away this would be a televised reality show.

It will televise the 10-year process — from astronaut selection and training, to launch, landing and Martian

I completely agree and what would make it worse is the one way ticket. You can't even have when you go home to look forward to. It will be horrible, they will wish they never went. It would take them about 6 months to a year to get used to it, and still not like it. They will miss so many things from home. Simple insignificant things.
