    40 people to be selected to take a 1 way ticket to Mars and inhabit the planet.

    I have two questions.

    1) What kind of nut job would you have to be to agree to go to Mars with 39 other people and never come back.

    2) Will they let Tone take his mountain bike?

    More than 100,000 apply for mission to colonize Mars in 2022; 40 picked will never return - NYPOST.com

    I can think of a few people who I would like to send back to their Martian homeland.

    Why Mars? I thought Venus was supposed to be a more inhabitable planet?

    Either way, I think this is nuts! Planned suicide for sure. I'm not even sure they can make the journey to the planet. Let alone manufacture water from the soil. Crazy

    It should be a lottery drawing for people to win a chance to put a person of their choice aboard. Tell them they have been "drafted" by the government and the have to fulfill their duty.

    IF I didn't have any family or friends, and IF it was safe, and IF there was an established life support environment, I'd go.....



















































    ...to Venus man, that's where women come from!!!!

    Forget that Mars place. Worthless lump of sand and rock it is...

    Just two Martian chicks will give you a six pack. Remember you're on an interplanatary voyage and must consolidate to save space whenever possible.

    Actually I asked that question because I just saw a funny commercial. A little boy asked his wise old grandfather where we all go when we die. His grandfather's answer was: "the ground".

    i think I'll stay on earth. Living on a planet with less gravity, I'd be concerned about muscle atrophy... so those folks going better bring your bowflex.

    Are you sure about that?

    The largest mountain in the solar system is Olympus Mons. It is on Mars and it is 3 times higher than Mt. Everest.

    I've seen TeH Mars (was just there last week) . . . not so great.

    Can we send the Kardashians (ALL of them)? And Justin Bieber too?

    See this is a double edged sword though - IF they succeed and survive, can you imagine the population they'd create

    Hmmmm . . . .

    I saw they were using Hawaii and though to myself "what nonsense".

    The biggest thing they will have to overcome is something that there is no way the can ever simulate which the psychological affects of the isolation of being 140 million miles away for the rest of your life and having complete dependency on people from earth getting you all the necessities to live until you complete the seemingly impossible task of making the planet inhabitable.

    So yeah, Hawaii that makes a lot of sense.

    Listen, you're a researcher figuring out where to do the test stuff: "Hmmm, Gobi Desert... no! Wait! What about Hawaii, they got some rocks too?!?" No-brainer really...

    ^ Agree that Weiner would continue to flash his Johnson.

    Instead, believe we should select the next 40 congressmen caught in a scandal,
    and send them to irritate the Martians, and enrich their lives.

    Why stop at 40? Budget for a much larger ship and send the whole lot.

    I think I already did this study in college. It's amazing how long you can survive on pop tarts, ramen, beer and coffee.
    The cake is a lie.
