One way colonization mission to Mars, 2023 - Mars One
Posted 26 July 2012 - 01:27 AM
Legitimate scientists have suggested a one way mission to Mars would not only be more feasible for design reasons but that it would also have greater scientific benefits. Learning about other planets can largely be done with robots and probes. However, one goal of manned missions to heavenly bodies is to learn how to colonize space. Long term or one way missions inherently necessitate understanding and honing the skills necessary to accomplish this.
Scientists such as Carl Sagan have suggested that these skills will be absolutely vital to the long term survival of our species. That is, the colonization of space will mean that we are not forced to keep all our eggs in one basket.
All that being said, I have serious doubts about the ability of this particular iteration of the idea to succeed.

How does one get there name into that lottery? I'd totally take a one way trip to mars!
\Sadly you'd be rejected as applicants must know the proper usage of there, their and they're as well as your and you're. This is very important on Mars.

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]

Acme Ray Guns are okay....
...but the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator is the way to go...
...perfect for getting rid of pesky earthlings, especially when they're obstructing your view of Venus...

6 billion is only .90 cents for every person on earth to contribute...... And if we weren't spending trillions on war, this project would have already left.
I'm in. Heck, I'll even kick in a Loonie....

I'm pretty sure they'll only be opening the applications to people in specific fields. I doubt they'll just take any joe schmoe off the street, maybe in the future when a base camp is completely established and they are ready to increase the population (though they may just do that through copulation and breeding among themselves)
Or portals. That would be pretty cool.

There's no way I'm sharing my bunk with Lisa Lampanelli for the rest of my life.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.
2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.
Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

This is a step for humanity. They will risk their lives in hopes we can find a feasible way to live and survive on another planet, 'cause the one we have now doesn't have much time left.
The earth will be fine. It's humanity's time that's limited.
