Has anyone from UM volunteered?

Not that I know but I could put a few names forward...

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Oh and just a personal note, I'm pretty sure the only applicants that will be selected will be the good-looking ones...
a ) Because there will be 4 live HD video feeds running 24/7 so Earth can watch this historic event
b ) One of the team members is a marketing/entertainment whiz
c ) Because eventually procreation will need to happen or there's no point in starting a colony... :whistle:

Wanta bet one of the Networks will try to show this as the ultimate reality show? :yes:

Sounds like Total Recall (the first movie).
The better one, too.

If they're still looking for applicants, let's just let the info slip that there was an accident on Mars, and some rich person may have caused it.  About a Trillion lawyers will leave for Mars to jump on that issue, and improve life on Earth in the process.

Let's see - there are 10 members on the "team". 3 of those members are bringing business/communication to the table as their area of expertise. Let's not forget about our most important member of the "advisors" list:

Steve Carsey - Steve Carsey is a UK television executive with a reputation for creating, developing and producing successful formatted entertainment, factual entertainment and event based programming for the international market

I'm not trying to discredit this project because I really, really want it to succeed, but we ALL know how media works: if they're going to be broadcasting 4 live HD streams 24/7, project sponsors will want their logos displayed as much as possible and the people on Mars have to look like they belong on TV. This seems like a serious scientific endeavour, but also reeks of a profitable media experiment... :passifier:

How do you survive without supply? Is it possible to create air, food, water out of nothing on Mars?

We can make air and water, usa's nuclear subs do.  For food hydroponics.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

if it's a one-way trip, I reckon most of the chosen will be old folks.
fit ones, but still coming to the end of their three-score & ten, so I guess they'll be needin' a grave-digger.....?

It is completely idiotic notion to consider one way trip to Mars a suicide mission. Sure there will be no return, but that is a necessary first step in practical colonization of another world, and people sent there are not expected to die in 1st year after their arrival, they are expected to put grounds for future mass colonization. It's like labeling first europeans who went in Australia or Americas as suidicers. The basis of suicide is desire to end ones life, and those guys would be leaving earth to begin a life.

Honestly, sending us 'old folks' to colonize a planet would be one heck of a dumb move. Even if any of us 50+ folks would agree to go (and I doubt many would) the physical stamina needed just isn't there.

Oh I don't know Lilly, I'm pretty sure the gravity is much lower on Mars - we could rediscover our childhoods, imagine batting a home run 10 miles up the road :w00t:

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

They should name this first colonization to Mars, Roanoke 2. It's gonna be interesting to see how history repeats itself.

If we could make it on Mars, why couldn't we make it on Earth. If we could there wouldn't be famine and pollute air and water.

Absolutely! I was halfway through typing a very similar response. This is only the second time in all of human existence that someone will have the opportunity to be the first to set foot on another world! What's more amazing is that this time, the opportunity is being extended to the common man! Who wouldn't want to forever be recorded as the first human being to land on the red planet?

You know those golf balls the hit into orbit on the moon.  The truth is they didn't go any further than they would have on earth.

The pods they,ll be living in would be temp. Structures.  Plenty of sand there to make a dome.  To redeation proof it they need lead.
