Get Your Ass to Mars: The Mars One Project

If you’re anything like me, you’ve contemplated leaving the planet forever rather than deal with 90% of the mouth breathing mall zombies we happen to share this rock with.  When you realize that you’re stuck here, you then begin to wonder how easy it would be just to blow the whole damn place up.  Well fret no longer because Mars One is coming up with a solution.  Hit the jump for some info and your orientation.




Via Mars One

Mars One will establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. A habitable settlement will be waiting for the settlers when they land. The settlement will support them while they live and work on Mars the rest of their lives. Every two years after 2023 an additional crew will arrive, such that there is a real living, growing community on Mars. Mars One has created a technical plan for this mission that is as simple as possible. For every component of the mission we have identified at least one potential supplier. Mars One invites you to join us in this next giant leap for mankind!


I don’t know if I should make a Bradbury comment, a Mass Effect Joke, a Futurama reference, or stick with the Total Recall theme I got going here, so I’ll just let your imagine run wild.  I do have one question that I’m gonna let Mr. Jim Bruer handle.
