    Someone has to take the leap and risk their lives. Won't be me, but I wish luck to whoever does. Still, I can't see anyone other than NASA landing on Mars in the next 20-25 years. Private space industry doesn't impress me. Though, I always see some people say NASA would have been there already if they had the federal funds and government support, but people say alot of things.

    One way trip to Mars

    Hey slick. You obviously aren't reading the topic.

    You can blather on alllllll day about distances in light years. How far Planet X is, how far Pluto is for that matter. Or the other end of the galaxy.

    The sad part is. We aren't talking about any of that. We are STILL talking about MARS. How many light years away is that? Oh. It isn't a light year away? It is 6 months flight time away. Oh.

    A simple fact of science is that almost all of it is about: "wouldn't it be super neat if." I swear. The lack of imagination is staggering.

    I am not sure if we ever ran across life on another planet we would be able to recognize it as such. Who know what life would be based on out there, I am sure life can exist that isn't based on carbon. What about form or non-form, then there is space and time, perhaps it is all different to them. who really knows? Possibilities are infinite.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: One way trip to Mars

    WHy do people always get so worked up about what other people are doing? I mean its not like anybody here is going to Mars or that it is your decision. If wealthy people want to privatize a Mars colony more power to them. It would be good entertainment.

    I could see it happening and I can see the potential to make big bucks off of it. The residents a I am sure would be ambitious. Once they get a big enough working force things would pick up fast. ANd Mars having less gravity wouldnt necessarily mean a one way trip. But I do think that it would be wiser to start out on the Moon, the logistics would be simpler. And people could decide to go home if it didnt work out in the short term.


    Actually it should go like this geocentric orbital station > Moon orbital station > Moon base > Mars orbital station > Mars base.

    I agree. 100%. Anyone with an issue about this is ignoring that it IS possible to focus our energies on multiple places at once. We have been, are still, and will continue to do so for a long time. Hell many recent discoveries in science have come from people doing crazy ass experiments in space, and that technology coming back to earth and helping mankind.

    He is at least smart enough to know the difference between then and than.

    "An ambitious project that aims to send volunteers on a one-way trip to Mars unveiled plans for the first private unmanned mission to the Red Planet Tuesday, a robotic vanguard to human colonization that will launch in 2018.

    Mars One invited anyone over age 18 to apply to be an astronaut. About 165,000 people answered the first call for applications, which closed at the end of August. There will be four rounds of selection before the finalists are chosen.
