gadian: I'd do it.  The kids would understand, right?  Hell, they can come too.

Woah. Mars is no place to raise a kid. In fact, it's cold as hell.

Hell, I won't go on a two day road trip with my wife.

The last damn thing I need is 501 days of being told that I am not flying the right direction.

YES! I would go. I would take my wife with me. Seriously? How could I not want to? My wife would be hesitant, until I mention the awesome fringe benefit of ... Zero gravity sex!

I already live most of the American dream, I'm a white guy who screws a minority. I may as well live the Ultimate dream, of doing that in space.

And we can catch up on reading and video games!

/now I've only got to find a babysitter
//name a more niche porn than "inter-racial, zero-gravity, ANY kind of sex"

The story is also on io9 right now.

The most popular comment thread there is a bunch of people whining about the fact the spacefaring couple is expected to be "heteronormative".

I just mentioned to my wife today that I'd chew my arm off for an opportunity to make that trip.  She said she wasn't going but my one armed self should have a good time.

So I'm going.
