Your Take: Would You Go One-Way to Mars?

Posted By Jim On 07/06/2012 @ 7:15 am In Your Take | 27 Comments

Here’s a crazy but cool idea – make a reality television show [3] where you send some people on a one way trip to Mars [4]. The idea is that a round trip would not be feasible but why not take the advertising from a reality TV show and use it to fund a one way trip to Mars, televising the whole process?

Mars One will establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. A habitable settlement will be waiting for the settlers when they land. The settlement will support them while they live and work on Mars the rest of their lives. Every two years after 2023 an additional crew will arrive, such that there is a real living, growing community on Mars. Mars One has created a technical plan for this mission that is as simple as possible. For every component of the mission we have identified at least one potential supplier. Mars One invites you to join us in this next giant leap for mankind!

Would you do it?
