It's certainly bold. One way trip to Mars, anyone?
Jesus: what a horrible thought. Spending the rest of your life on Mars living in one of those white pods.
Imagine what it will cost to keep a person living on another planet. I'm all for exploring space etc, but before we start underwriting the cost of having people live on Mars, I'd rather see everyone here on Earth with clean drinking water.
Bonkers. The technology is nowhere near mature. These first settlers would not die of old age.
I think before I go to live on Mars, I'll get the idea out of my system by going to a Burning Man Festival for one week.
Imagine being stuck with just three people for two years; what if you didn't get on with one of them.
Also, if you decide it's a bit shit, you're stuck their for life? How rubbish.
They made a movie about that. It was called The Shining.
One of the Mars One creators needs to go out there as a show of good faith.
no I could imagine them dying of something far more nasty than old age
They could send old people. I'd be up for it if I only had a few years left; the lower gravity would be better for my joints.
summat will go wrong, someone will lose it
btw on that brass eye video, just read the greatest youtube comment ever
Can I take weed?
I think I will stay here thanks, there is a co-op only five minutes away and ikea is only a short tram ride.
getchya ass to mars
An entrepreneur, a physicist who flunked his PhD, a graphic designer and a PR. Um... Yeah.
I spent a little time explaining to the Mr the other night that you can hurt yourself just as much doing BMX in the low-g of Mars. He was more interested in how to dry weed without the crystals blocking up the air flirtation tbf.....
In all honesty I don't expect this to turn into a viable Mars colony, I expect they have read too much scifi.
A member of the company (un: arnoux) gets his arse handed to him by the experts in this forum thread: http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=29053.0
You know the prospect of living on Mars is bad when it makes a trip to Ikea seem appealing.
Would the food be organic?
In which sense of the word?
More likely the finest hyroponics. Alternatively, sheet meat and algae, anyone?
They haven't even managed to land one person on mars yet and they are talking about setting up a permanent colony in 11 years time? we haven't even gone back to the moon for about 40 years or so.
Apparently it's a Dutch company behind it, so you should be ok.
I was wondering. That Arnoux don't talk too good.
Come to think of it, I bet the idea was dreamt up in a coffeeshop.
I'm sure they will find enough people mental enough to say yes.
So can this thread be made a sticky till 2023?
and what happens if one of them goes boat happy?
