A notice that made me think...

Humans could be sent to Mars one-way as part of Nasa plans to permanently colonise other planets.



Scientists have confirmed that they are looking into the possibility sending astronauts to other planets by 2030.
It would take the volunteers nine months to get to the red planet, and they would leave knowing they would never see Earth again.
That is because it would cost too much to fly them back.
The mission, titled Hundred Years Starship, is likely to cost something in the region of £7 billion, and it is relying on grants and donations. The world's billionaires have reportedly been asked to contribute.

That is the notice...and I think WHAT THE HELL??? Volunteers to go to Mars knowing they will be left there to die? and the reason is the worst part "Money"... I am so against this, I mean they still have 20 years to gather money, or to do something to make it cost less I don't know, but saying that 20 years before it really happens makes me think there are some greedy bastards behind this.

So, Bill Gates along with Carlos Slim could pay for the round trip uh?  Well, Leave your comments on your thoughts...and I know there would be a lot of people willing to go even if they know they will never come back xD Thanks for reading! take care and be happy!

  2. Wow that must be crazy leaving and knowing you wont come back. I think I'll wait till they colonize before I head over there. I don't see there being much to do over there.

  6. I have the same issues as you. I wouldn't want to send anyone knowing that they were going to be left there for dead.

  7. No one is forcing these people to go to Mars (unless you're from China).

    And obviously someone will start a protest group against these people being left to die on Mars so no need to worry about that.
