MARS COLONISTS SOUGHT


Published: Jan. 11, 2013 at 4:28 PM By GABRIELLE LEVY, UPI.com
Would you like to go live on Mars?

A Dutch company called Mars One has announced plans to create the first human settlement on the Red Planet in just 10 years.

Mars One plans to pick travelers to submit to a full-time training program that will conclude with a one-way ticket to Mars, where a prepared colony will be waiting.

Prospective colonists must be at least 18 years old, and the Mars One team says qualities such as resiliency, adaptability, creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity will be given high priority. All necessary skills for Mars survival will be taught to the colonists over the next decade as they prepare full-time to blast into space--and history.

Mars One founders Bas Landsorp and Arno Wielders, entrepreneurs with ties to technology and space industries, said they plan to send probes and rovers as early as 2016 to prepare the planet for human habitation.

And--no surprise here--they plan to fund the mission through the wonders of Reality television.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Space X founder Elon Musk is also eyeing plans to populate Mars, offering aspiring Martians berth for the low low price of half a million dollars.

Mars ain't all it's cracked up to be.... Small hands, smell of cabbage not to mention probing. I'm never goin back. Just sayin. I'm holding out for the Death Star.

Carnies are really Martians!?! That time I woke up broke, sticky and confused after stepping up to shoot out the star is all starting to make sense, now.

I thought you would be the first to relate to such an experience.
