Mars calls to those that Dream big and believe that Man can do anything he puts his Heart and soul and our money into !
Its just the way we are. And some day man will venture off earth, into the unknown, Who Knows We may just make it some day out there. I would Love to Think we have it in us to Do !
Even its not the Final Frontier Its only one more to explore. Look Big Dream Big Take a bit larger steps to get there. Like the Mars One People are doing.
I would go in a heart beat. Even knowing it would be the last ones on earth ! I would at least be trying !

Ive got a really good idea, lets ask westborow baptis church to go to mars, they should just volenteer cause they hate everyone anyways, they could be with there brainwashed followers all the time, the show whould probally have 1 season before we decide that these people arent worth watching, then we cut all ties and let them take it from there. we shouldnt have time for hate when theres so many ways to better our selfs as the human race.

The Astronaut Selection process start sometime between now and July 2013, you have to make a one-minute video from yourself about why you want to go to Mars and what it means for you to never be able to return to Earth. Then, you have to send it to the Mars One people and pay a small fee (not more than $25, according to Mars One).

More info can be found on their website: http://mars-one.com/en/

You can look over the application process here http://mars-one.com/...ualify-to-apply  to determine whether you could be a Mars One colonist.


God speed, zerocoder. :tu:

In a weird and voyeuristic way, thats the kind of TV show its probably going to be, or more like 'Big Brother ' once they get there

Wicked, a few tweeks here and there and I can do all that.
Not sure about this bit though : Once on Mars, there is no means to return to Earth. Mars is home......would like to know if they have narrowboats there, would at least like to return to Earth once in a while to check my boat is ok if I can`t take it with me.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Well, they have canals, we know ...
And if Mr. Hoagland is right*, there's great underground cities & all sorts of things. Sounds as if it'd be fun.

canals are a start, but water is a must. Underground cities I can do without......withdrawing my application!!
Just wondering what sort of tests they will be doing on people, they will want fertile, non diseased only types to breed for the new generation of inhabitants.....now thats sounds as if it could be fun. :whistle:

well, I did say earlier that childbirth may not even be a possibility on Mars, its a gravity and radiation thing, and bone loss amongst others... with science behind it.  Besides who should bring a child into life to live in such dangerous inhospitable conditions? I wouldnt wish that on any child of mine

quote:

"Conceiving a child in the final frontier might be downright dangerous".

"There are many risks to conception in low or microgravity, such as ectopic pregnancy," Woodmansee said. "And, without the protection of the Earth's atmosphere, the higher radiation levels raise the probability of birth defects."

Microgravity does strange things to the body. From bone density loss to odd fluid distribution, the human body was not built to live in low-gravity conditions. Astronauts combat these less-than-ideal conditions through exercise and other methods, but scientists are not sure how they will affect a mother and child.

"The thing is, a baby created and born in space could be perfectly fine," Woodmansee said. "We just don’t know enough about the subject. We've evolved here on the Earth, so moving to outer space is moving evolution in a different direction."

Now, sex on the way maybe eh?


"Sex is very difficult in zero gravity, apparently, because you have no traction and you keep bumping against the walls," biologist Athena Andreadis of the University of Massachusetts Medical School told SPACE.com in 2011. "Think about it: you have no friction, you have no resistance"

http://www.space.com...rs-mission.html


Be fun to watch the others try it,  if nothing else!!  :w00t: :w00t:

end quote!

plus, they wont exactly have midwifes and doctors to help a birth along will they?  Or tend to any complications that may arrise. Or have the 'right' drugs for all eventualities? Now will they?

what if she needs a cesarean?? Loses blood? Goes into coma? Who you gonna call?
