4 people, 2 men and 2 women, will be selected to go to Mars to live there forever. The people there might be reality tv stars.

I wish I could go but I know my chances are zero. By the way the deadline is august, 2013.


Yes.

I doubt they'll stay there forever (unless they die there which could be very possible). Look at SpaceX's progress with the Grasshopper rocket.

 

I'd like to go as well but I'd rather my life not turn into a reality TV show, especially as I battled my doubts about going. Pretty sure if it does happen there are going to be a lot of mental break downs and it's going to be pretty uncool to watch.

I already posted it in the news... anyway i would accept it only if they put me in the spaceship alone with Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz.

Sorry for reposting it. I should use the search option before I post.

I seriously thought about applying.

Then I seriously thought about me being accepted. 

 

Then I seriously thought it was a bad idea, even if I would be famous for ever.


Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

My heart and mind goes out to those people who will be selected to go to Mars. They shall make history, most likely at the expense of their sanity. As for me, space can wait a bit longer. Not done on Earth quite yet.

I'm skeptical about Mars One. They haven't demonstrated anything yet.

If I was in a situation where I had nothing on Earth I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I still have the chance of a life though.  I may not end up as a bum or lonely at this point.  If I lost my wife or family and had nothing left I'd sure do it.

 

Ru^ I am skeptical about it too, but what is certain is that Falcon Heavy.  It will take us there for sure.

 

 

The people who do go are going to have to be the most adventurous people on the planet.  Someone people will look up to for the rest of human history.  As the first humans to leave the planet.  The final/first step into assuring humanity evolves into something greater.

 

Too dramatic? Nope.

I would never, ever apply for something like this. It just seems way too dangerous, and how the hell would they survive up there? Bad, very bad idea.

Most people probably think this is a very bad idea as you say, but there are several hundred people, at least, in the world who think this is the best thing to ever happen to them. It's a matter of perspective.

True., except I'm guessing most of funding will come from the reality TV aspect. It's a shame people care more about TV entertainment than space exploration, but whatever, money is money I suppose.

I think more people will care about space exploration when we have propulsion that can get us to another star system in one's own lifetime.

Would love to do it, probably wouldn't be accepted, no skills, not dramatic enough.

Don't need skills, anyone accepted will be given all knowledge required. 

 

Some of the vids are going to be nice to watch haha

 

Also, they won't have to stay there their entire life. Max 20 years, they'll probably be able to hitch a ride back in less time even.

Think very hard what you're about to do - this is a very big decision that will severely affect how you're going to live the rest of your life. It is very similar to being sent to prison for life - give or take the few perks. At least, initially it will be exactly like a prison minus the guards who tell you what to do (unless you consider Mars One officials telling you NOT to do something like prison guards).

 

You got to be absolutely sure you won't regret this decision if you got accepted and you say yes.

Haha, I know this isn't the sensible way to think about it, but the chances of being one of the select few to be chosen seems so minute.

 

Could I just up and leave everyone for a decade? Perhaps forever? Could you guys?

 

EDIT: They're asking for a $30 fee to register..

I could. I honestly very much want to. But having billions of people staring at me through a camera while I launched to my probable death? No thanks.

 

Seriously though? If you're unwilling to cough up $30 than I have my doubts that you'd actually be willing to go.
