I think this response reflects why we have been so successful as a species. We are inherently adventurers driven to explore and adapt. To inhibit this drive is to diminish that which should be celebrated.

I know you were jesting, but for those that don't know, here's from the article:

The final shortlist will feature 40 applicants and, of these, only four (two men, two women) will be sent on the first trip. The four are expected to touch down on Mars in April 2023.
--------------------

Again, I seriously doubt they can launch in 9-years. Safely, anyway.

Will they be sending stuff prior to the final launch being bio domes to live in, vehicles, food, plants (seeds) etc etc or will they be putting all the eggs into one basket. ?

I would gladly send these 100,000 morons to Mars if I could. I'm willing to bet that the majority of them know nothing about Mars. This reminds me of the time when some company was scamming idiots out of their money by offering them real estate on the moon. Good rittens to these idiots.

considering my luck...or lack thereof, I would most likely get stuck with 3 people I completely despise.

On the brighter side of things, I'd be Mars' first serial killer, therefor becoming imperial ruler/lone survivor.

Almost tempting.

You do realize it is a one-way trip.  They could almost do that now, but nobody would survive the landing.

I don't think they would send them there to die. Too much money gone to waste if so. I'm sure they have it all figured out before they send any volonteers.

I'd sign as a colonist too, if everything was figured out. Just perhaps not for Mars as a destination :).

They say it won't go until 9 or so years from now?  Let's see; I will be 92 then.  Think they would take me as a volunteer?

Oh, I don't know. I think it could happen. But in the time allotted, I doubt it. It might not happen in my lifetime. But it sure is fun to think about.

I don't think this is more insane then people who sign-up to fight in the Middle East since that is mostly one way trip because either they kill you there (like they did Pat Tillman) or you come home and become completely insane because they made you do these horrific atrocities to innocent people.
At least on Mars you do something positive.
