Nasa wants to send you to Mars..But you could never comeback

http://www.news.com.au/technology/sc...#ixzz13iRhnmYp

Would you do it?

IT'S the biggest dead-end job ever.

NASA is looking for volunteers to fly to Mars - the snag is that you won't come back.

It is actively investigating the possibility of humans colonising worlds such as the Red Planet.

The settlers would be sent supplies from Earth but would go on the understanding that it would be too costly to bring them home

Only if part of the colonization involved being sent there with a hot cosmonaut for the purpose of breeding.

I believe the ratio should be at least 3 girls for every boy.

I can only imagine the kinds of psychological problems this mission would produce. I suppose if you have someone with the right mindset, it could work. The Pilgrims knew they had a one way trip from England. It's a little harsher on Mars than New England I think though.

Re: Nasa wants to send you to Mars..But you could never comeback

the price of sending 20 Mars settlers with a one-way ticket would be equal to bringing four astronauts back.

I've heard Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. In fact, it's cold as hell.

Muggins, myself and a cargo hold full of the purple. Martian atmosphere bong rips would be awesome. We better bring Nemesis too, as the bitch.

I think I'd do this as long as they named a school on earth after me.

Re: Nasa wants to send you to Mars..But you could never comeback

Do I get internet access?
Does this come with a dental plan?
What are my retirement options?
Perhaps I could work out a telecommute deal instead of actually going to Mars?

These sorts of questions need answering.
