You all could be one of the first colonists of Mars. Who is interested? They will fund this mission by selling TV and media rights by creating a reality / talent TV show experience.

In 2011, the founding members of the Mars One team initiated planning for the colonization of Mars. That first year yielded the completion of a feasibility study, calling upon experts from space agencies around the world and private aerospace corporations. Written letters of interest in support of the Mars One plan were received. In this analysis, Mars One incorporated technical, financial, social-psychological and ethical components.

Where it would otherwise be too costly for a single corporation and too risky for a solitary government agency, Mars One will through the integration of existing technologies succeed in establishing the first human settlement on Mars by April 2023.

Unique to Mars One will be the means by which such a large undertaking is made financially feasible. Not unlike the televised events of the Olympic Games, Mars One intends to maintain an on-going, globally televised media event, from astronaut selection to training, from lift-off to landing, to provide primary funding for this next giant leap for mankind.

To paraphrase C-3PO: A simulation inside a simulation. How perverse. Very Happy

Looks like Mars may have creatures who cover themselves in planet dirt. No one knows how dangerous these creatures can be.
Same goes for possible humanoids, who may be there. Could be a very hostile environment.
Also, a war may be going on there.
If I were young enough to go, one stipulation I would have, is we go armed.
Mars could be hell!

Stay thirsty, my friends.

Mars is being explored at the present time. I wonder how many of these enthusiasts for in-the-flesh human missions are even following the rover results. Sending people to Mars interests a lot more humans than does Mars itself, but manned missions would very much interfere with Mars exploration by soaking up hundreds of times the funding as robot missions. I wonder if we deserve to know about anything beyond Earth, as so few are interested in anything but ourselves.
