Dying here with another lousy head cold and sinus congestion and yes, I get way too many of these. I’ve vowed to stop shaking hands and going with fist bumps from this moment on. I’m predicting that fist bumping alone will prevent me from contracting a good 75 percent of the bugs and viruses I pick up in a year.
The opportunity to travel to Mars is certainly a once in a lifetime offer. More so if you’re accepted to the Mars One project: the journey is a one-way ticket, requiring you to spend the rest of your life on the Red Planet. But the prospect of permanent colonization millions of miles from earth isn’t thwarting the hopeful, reports Time. Almost 80,000 people have applied for the chance in just two weeks.
The ambitious Mars One project plans to establish a human colony on the surface of Mars by 2023. The group began taking applications through its site recently, and expects to receive half a million entrants by the time the application window closes in August.
Departure day is a mere 10 years away, so start packing your bags. I’d join up but I suffer from claustrophobia so there is no possible way I’d survive the trip. Even at warp speed, the voyage to mars is a five month endeavor. The closest I’ve come to experiencing a ridiculous amount of time in the air was a 16 hour flight I once took from LA to Sydney. Aside from having to deal with the confined space, I was locked in coach with a bunch of crying, screaming babies. I love children but there is something unpleasant about being 35,000 feet up in the air, for 16 hours, with dozens of very unhappy babies. Not fun.
But getting back to Mars, how’s this for an idea…say we send some of our favorite space cadets on that one-way ticket to the red planet? It’s a win-win. Mars gets the humans (well, sort of human) it needs to populate the planet and Earth has a few less loons to deal with.
