The fact that there's no way to get home again has done little to stop people signing up in their droves.

IB Times said:

The chance to colonise a new planet sounds like something from Star Trek, but early settlers need to accept that they are unlikely to see Earth again. This is exactly what a large number of people will do in 2022, when the Mars One project launches.

I wonder if its possible to sign up other people than myself.... like my neighbour.

Sorry, but I reckon it's a big con. 100k people paid fifty bucks each. 5 million towards a 6 billion dollar project. Riiiiiight.

I bet over half of these people want to go and not come back because they know this rock is rapidly going down the crapper!

They are thinking something along the lines of...

Where are they going to live? What are they going to do? After about 10 minutes they'll all want to come home but they'll be trapped forever.

9-years to launch? That's not even going to happen. More like 20 years at best.

Even still, when it is able, maybe the will have room for my already dead carcass/ashes.

Ashes are light-weight, shouldn't be a problem.  :passifier:

Quote me a price, as I do not any longer wish to be buried in this b****** Earth.

So who is building the ship, the base?  Who will train them, how often will they need a resupply?

The whole thing is ridiculous, clearly pie in the sky.
