Mars One is looking at "a range of funding scenarios." The total estimated budget for getting the first four humans to Mars is $6 billion. Lansdorp would not disclose how much money has been secured from partners and sponsors but said donations currently total more than $200,000.

Wow, $200,000 whole dollars.  That will possibly cover the fuel for one stage of a LEO capable rocket.

Do they die up there? If not seems like you could be sending up parts to start building a moon base

Many questions about life on Mars.

1. Will it be Republican or Democratic society?
2. Will it be the Dollar or Bitcoin as the currency of the planet?
3. What kind of justice system?
4. What kind of law enforcement?
5. Penal system?
6. US Constitution?
7. Will people have the right to bear arms?
8. Age of Consent?
9. Voting age?
10. Drug laws?
11. Legal holidays?
12. Cost of a cemetery plot?

One would need to know all this in advance of any trip to an alien planet, to keep one's self out of trouble.

I almost forgot. If you die on Mars, do you still go to Heaven like you do on earth? If you are bad on Earth, you supposedly go to Hell, which is in the center of the Earth. Where do you go if you are bad on Mars? Does God know you are dead, if you die on Mars? If Jesus was the saviour on Earth, who is the saviour on Mars?

On Mars, you might not even notice you have died.  You'll just quietly join the ranks of the old ones, and continue composing that epic poem you were concentrating so hard on.

Don't be silly.

Everyone knows you can't get a rocket past Heaven, which is in the upper atmosphere of Earth (the clouds), anyway!
