Mars One: One-Way Ticket To The Red Planet! IS THERE ANYBODY YOU'D LIKE TO SEND ON A ONE-WAY TRIP TO MARS? (No Obama answers, please. It's too obvious.)

Yes, I'd like to send (fill in the blank) on a one-way trip to Mars.
No, there isn't anyone I'd want to send on a one-way trip to Mars.
Heck, I'd like to send MYSELF on a one-way trip to Mars!
You!

It sounds like a science-fiction fantasy, but the company Mars One says that it's for real, and it will really establish a settlement on the planet Mars by 2023. The privately financed Dutch company has a plan. All it needs is a lot of cash, equipment and four Mars-bound astronauts who are willing to take a one-way trip to the red planet. The idea is to first send rovers, which will stake out a good site for a settlement and then build out living units. In 2022, the crew will take a "transit habitat" for the seven-month trip to Mars and settle in to their new home. The intention is that the crew will live on the planet for the rest of their lives. Every two years after that, another group will join the settlement to populate the colony.

Mars One co-founder Bas Lansdorp has a modern approach to funding the project: media exposure. "We will finance this mission by creating the biggest media event ever around it," adding, "Everybody in the world can see everything that will happen in the preparations and on Mars." Next year, the company will begin an astronaut selection process. Those who have the right stuff will then undergo a decade of preparation. And then, we assume, the Mars travelers will be ready for their out-of-this-world close-up.

IS THERE ANYBODY YOU'D LIKE TO SEND ON A ONE-WAY TRIP TO MARS? (No Obama answers, please. It's too obvious.)

    A couple of my obnoxious neighbours along with their equally obnoxious and spoilt brats would be just dandy by me...

    At the present time, I'd like to shoot my son off on a trip to Mars. I love the boy to pieces, but he's in the proverbial crapper with me right now! (JUST KIDDING, MICHAEL!)

    SARAH PALIN..she would fit in quite well, no intelligent life there so she would be right at home!

    Sarah Palin would be a PERFECT candidate for a one-way trip to the Red Planet, for the reason you mentioned. In fact, she could take the rest of the Wasilla Hillbillies with her, for good measure! Thanks for your comments, Piwan, and have a wonderful weekend!

    [P.S. Did you know that Bristol Palin has her own reality show coming up on Lifetime, called "Life's A Tripp," or something like that? How much more trash can Hollywood dump on the American TV viewers? I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than watch ANYTHING concerning ANY member of the Palin family!]

    That is scary, another Palin show, well I certainly won't be tuning in. I am wondering , though, if by chance there IS any life on Mars i don't think I would want to inflict her on them!

    I never thought of that, the potential that there might be life on Mars. You are a kind person, not wanting to inflict the Palin clan on other intelligent life in the universe. It's bad enough that we humans have to put up with them.

    That would be enough to make "war of the Worlds" a reality, if we sent her there and there WAS intelligent life, I am sure they would want to retaliate!

    Yes, the Martians, if they exist, would most definitely retaliate if we shipped the Palin family to their planet! Whatever planet the Palin's inhabit, they definitely dumb down the "intelligent" life wherever they go! [Kind of like Alaska!]

    Maybe Palin should go live with the cast of "Jersey Shore", she would be at home there, I think!

    Did Bristol Palin's new reality show already get axed by Lifetime? I sure do hope so. I've already learned more about these Wasilla hillbillies than I ever wanted to know! The Palin family is like SO five minutes ago!

    Well, by the time these one-way trips to Mars are viable, there probably won't be much left here on Earth anyway. The financial situation on the Red Planet HAS to be better than our global economy! Bon voyage, mon ami! Thanks for your response, Starman!
