So the non profit Mars one is planning to settle Mars in 2023 permanently. They just released their qualifications for their astronauts. Would you go to Mars on a one way trip, grow your own food, and slowly die of radiation?

I'd do this.

I'm thinking 2123...no way 2023.

I wouldn't want to live anywhere that didn't have blue skies and water (at least a little) and green grass.

Wonder what the astronaughts will do after getting bored with studying red rocks and clay. Year after year after year. And living in a pod the size of a small caravan.

They would have to fly one way for a good reason.. To be the first people on another planet.

Their names would go down in history.

that can be shielded against and i wonder how much of a threat that would be once you are on Mars itself (compared to all the radiations and pollution we are facing every day here on earth :o )

I would not go on a mission like this. I'd be homesick, paranoid, and without the Internet... out of those three, for me, the worst to have to endure would be being without the Internet.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Since it has such a thin atmosphere I think what I read was they would live basically under ground to escape the radiation. But I just read this article that seems to say it's not as bad as I thought. http://www.space.com...ed-mission.html
