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.

I would go, since unless there is some calamity on earth new missions will be sent to mars, maybe even as soon as a year later. Within 10 years you would probably be able to return as an active mars base/space port would be built.

That register fee is actually a great way to avoid spam and ppl that are not really determined.

Haha, that's true.

 

But a fee coupled with the small chance of going is basically like a very expensive lottery to me.

After reading through their site and watching video's of other applicants I'm not sure I would want to go. I can't imagine being trapped with some of those people for the rest of my life.

Yeah, I just watched through some of the videos. A lot of interesting characters...

Without being sexist, the women are the worst, so many of those have a "Yes I'm a girl! Yes I'm a gamer! Don't flirt with me you silly boys!" thing going on, it's unbearable.

 

Or maybe I'd just have a larger investment in the few women I'd be around for the next decades, so I'm more inclined to be picky.

I guess all that is besides the point, you're going to colonise mars not get laid.

I won't bet on chances of this plane being a success until they can create a fusion rocket.

I recon someone is spam voting for that Anders dude... his popularity is crazy, and he's really not very interesting at all.

Do we even have the technology for this kind of venture? I'm almost certain that we don't. Until we have achieved a level of 3d printing where it would be easy to "print" buildings on Mars, I think we are not ready.

 

Though to be honest, who actually thinks these people are pioneers? It will be another century before Mars colonization becomes an actual prospect. These people are going to live on an empty world, barren, deserted and empty of all life and slowly go mad.

 

Let's be realistic guys. 2023 is crazy early.

I will go to visit Mars when (if) it has been terraformed (at least partially, as I would be in an artificial body that may be able to better cope with such conditions). That is if I live to reach the day that this is the case.

 

Living on Mars now? NO F*****G WAY! I would miss Earth (and the things that it has, e.g. family and friends, technology, places etc.), it would be a problem if I fell out with somebody and, most of all, it is REALLY DANGEROUS! In addition, I would not want to be in the company of the same people for the rest of my life. That sounds impossibly depressing, even if they are great people!
