    One way trip to Mars

    I'm sure there are a few people in this forum that wish I would sign up for this but really I just can't imagine. Apparently there is no shortage of applicants though. Beats the hell outa me why.


    "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.

    I don't think I would do it, but human colonization on other worlds is a very important venture. I support this endeavor wholeheartedly and wish them all the luck in the world.

    Someone has to go first. We're using this planet up pretty fast. Mars is a high potential future home for humankind. Not so long ago, "going West" in America was a big adventure. Now, you can get cell service in the heart of the African jungle.

    Progress.

    If I had no family commitments? Yes, I'd go.
