Bas Lansdorp, the 35-year-old founder of Mars One, said his company is serious about a one-way mission. The company will hold a worldwide lottery next year to select 40 people for a training team. They will then set up a mock colony in the desert, possibly somewhere in the U.S., for three months. This initial team will be reduced to ten crew members.

They will then be sent to Mars, never again to return. :alien:

Send life'rs up there first, just the really nasty ones, hide food around Mars, and release ferocious monsters at timed intervals, stream live video 24/7 back to Earth > buy popcorn and visit the bookies :D

Yea I have my doubts whether they would even make the journey, let alone the landing and then surviving on mars

It's only around 300 days to get to Mars but there are bigger risks to humans like solar storms, cosmic rays and other nasties.

Well here's an odd question, but if they send males and females to mars, would they be encouraged to reproduce or prevented from doing it?..

lol, I would generously pass my ticket to the nearest person and go home

They will have some serious vetting of people to send, once they are off the ground / on Mars, they are the law

Not really a suicide mission, just because you can't return home.... Bit of a misleading title.

In any case, I would love to be one of the pioneers in this. Pretty sure my family would be upset though. As long as they send people up in "pairs," I'd be OK with it. :shifty:

This would be interesting, and I would sign up for it in a heartbeat. Who knows, maybe they can build a self sustaining colony, and start to propagate Mars Ala. Total Recall.

I think they'll probably send some animals first, on this suicidal mission.

Exactly, humans!

:p

That would be a large waste of money and resources. They may send some with them, but not just animals alone.

You do realize you can still have sex after being fixed right? If anything, yuo can have more of it because everyone going will be fully checked for diseases and no risk for pregnancy.

Thrilling news. It's about time at least some of us got off this rock. (Even if it is a long way off.) I hope they last out there, I truly do.

Odds are they will all eventually die from radiation, but it's still neat, and the first baby steps of leaving the solar system.

I'd go in the name of "science"....just to see if my eyes pop out when I try to release the air that Cohaagen is really in control of. But that's just me. (Been there, done that, hence my user name, LOL! Okay, only joking...)

Better yet just send the total prison population then a few 100 years later we'll be watching lame but addictive soaps from Mars.

Sounds like they want people to reproduce to me.

Yea I know what 'fixed' means, I still wouldn't be choosing to get the snip in order to go live in the most boring remote place not on Earth
