TV show running a contest to select people for a one way flight to Mars.

Quote:
A reality show that sends players on a mission to colonize Mars might sound insane, but that’s not stopping Mars One from trying it. They plan to land humans on the surface of Mars in 2023. The search for those humans begins this July with an open call for entries to be on the show. One caveat is that Mars One has no plans of returning their astronauts to Earth. Ever.

Mars One is a not-for-profit group focused on establishing a human settlement on Mars. Their intention is to do this through private companies, not any nation’s space agency, and they claim to already have suppliers on board for all the components they will need. To fund the project, they’re opening it up as a reality-television-style event, where the world can watch, donate, and even vote on which team of astronauts are sent to Mars.

Geekosystem covered the details of the Mars One plan back in June of 2012, and it’s summarized in their own promotional video:



If a one-way ticket to Mars sounds like something you’d be into, you can create a one-minute entry video and submit it this July with a small entry fee. Mars One founder Bas Lansdorp said he expects one million video entries, and hopes some will go viral.

The fee will vary It’ll be no more than $25 though, so you can probably afford it. The revenue generated from the entry fees will actually be used to help fund the project, which as you would imagine is very expensive.

It’s still unclear how serious this mission is. It could be a bold new approach to the role of humanity in outer space, or the insane plan of a mad man, and it’s probably somewhere between the two.

Why would you not want to go to Mars?

This is a realization of "the final frontier." The reaches of Earth have been exhausted, the spirit of man seeks new adventure! This is historic in the greatest sense. If someone offered me a ticket, I would be a complete fool not to take it. \:D/

It's basically like being the first manned mission to the moon, except even bigger. You would instantly be world famous, and the spotlight of history would follow you through the rest of your enthralling existence.

Except, this would be your entire life, and you might get sucked into a black hole.

...I'll wait to travel space until eternity. :noway:

Because mars is uncharted territory... and many many things could go wrong.

I think living on Mars would be cool. No, it would actually be really cold. I don't like the cold that much so I don't think I'd enjoy it there permanently, but I think a brief visit to Mars would be nice.

The thought of going into space and something going wrong terrifies me. I'd rather stay on our own planet where there is plenty of oxygen.

a one way trip to Mars? No thanks.. I think it would be cool to go to Mars or the moon or something, but not for the rest of my life.

You guys are insane. It sound like you're casually considering a trip overseas or something. >_>

This is MARS we're talking about.

MARS.

A NEW PLANET.

Actually it's not a new planet since it was probably made when our planet was made and it was discovered many years ago. Just thought to let you know. ;) @Jelly

I am SO with Jelly here. Maybe it's just cause I'm bored right now, but to have the chance to be the first human to explore a whole new planet... it gives me chills.

If you can't take over the world you could take over a nearby planet.

I would love to visit but not to stay. If humans keep going there we will need to send missionaries one day if the Lord tarries.

I am not interested in going to another planet permanently at all. :P That would be pretty lonely, to know you will never see your family and home again. It's not worth it.
