"The technology to bring humans from Mars back to Earth simply does not exist yet."

...Yeah it does.  Maybe you meant to say it isn't cost effective?  Or maybe you'd like to explain how we can leave Earth and land on another planet, yet can't seem to leave Mars and land on another planet...

Also, I'd like to volunteer!  I hate this planet and everyone on it.

Setup a reality show about it.  Beam it back to Earth. Survivors Mars.  Rating should be good.

Oh I see what they're doing after reading the Mars-One website:

As successive Mars One Teams arrive, the settlement will grow in its capacity for scientific research, experiments, and exploration of Mars, with a minimum of four high definition video streams providing viewers on Earth with 24/7/365 engagement.

Hopefully not ppv. Maybe it'll be like Big Brother (in Space). Or Survivor. I'd probably watch though.

TuteTibiImperes: Why haven't we tried to build a permenantly habitated base on the moon yet? It seems.like we could learn a lot about the potential struggles of a settlement on Mars, but for a lot less money, and with the potential to being people back is there is major problem at the base.


Because moon dust is basically made up of microscopic shards of rock and glass that haven't been softened up by erosion like on Earth, so they basically act like asbestos when you breathe them in, and the little jagged bits cause the dust to stick to everything, so it is hard as hell to keep it outside the colony. The cost of building and maintaining a lunar colony pales in comparison of the cost of the resulting mesothelioma settlement payout to the inhabitants.

The real payoff will come when they secure the prothean data archives on mars--imagine the money to be made just selling one technological break-through per year!

/hopefully we get an early start on the crucible project!

mat catastrophe: I speak for all sane humans when I say that we should send all the libertarians.

Give them a whole planet, I say. Let them have their fantasy land there.


I say the same about the Space Nutters. I just want to make sure there's a reliable video link so I can watch them scream and cry and beg to come back to this "mud ball". I say we don't let them.

Never make it there. And even if you did miraculously manage to somehow, your brain would be so destroyed by radiation you'd just sit there staring at the sun and drooling until you starved to death.

Lansdorp said he's looking for people who are utterly dependable, good in groups and "at their best when things are at their worst."

You may have some problems in the screening process.
