    NASA is looking for volunteers to fly to Mars - the snag is that you won't come back.
    It is actively investigating the possibility of humans colonising worlds such as the Red Planet.
    The settlers would be sent supplies from Earth but would go on the understanding that it would be too costly to bring them home.
    NASA revealed that it had already received more than $1 million to commence work on the project at its Ames Research Centre in California.
    Centre director Pete Worden, who claimed humans could be living on Mars by 2030 despite the inhospitable conditions, said: "The human space program is now aimed at settling other worlds.

    "Twenty years ago you had to whisper that in dark bars or get fired."
    Who would do it for a little section in the NASA history books?

    Whats the point, they are sending you out on a trip for 6months in space ship just to reach mars and then when you do you will lose all luxury. You have nothing but the ground, no house. (What if transformer came and harrased you?)

    That is why we should have a draft. I would like to nominate chuck norris to go. He is getting really old and could fight off the transformers. It would definitely suck loosing everything to go live on Mars. But believe it or not there are probably millions of people that would be ok with this new lifestyle. But definitely not me I rather stay here and get hookers and pizza when I need them.

    This is stupid. But seriously, we're observing te behaviour of typical Americans. We've got enough to sort out on the planet. Yeah, you know that one? The one we live in? But no; ruin the Earth and then ditch it for Mars, the lovely red alternative.

    Kinda bothers me that the Government spends billions of dollars on things that will probably never happen pushing us further into debt.

    earth = world :p

    I just don't understand why they want regular people, if something bad happens, like o2 shortage or other likely to happen situations, only a qualified astronaut would know what to do.

    Heck make it a 20 year program and some might go for it, that excuse that it is too expensive to bring them back is a bit depressing.

    And what would you do in Mars ? Jump around outside ? That would be fun for the first 5minutes or so.

    The people who should go, are the people who know how to make the future right.
