The $38.00 ticket to Mars!
« on: April 28, 2013, 04:33:07 pm »
OK, so you wanna go to Mars.  If you are in good physical and mental health and can maintain that health during a grueling 8-year training regimen, you can be on Mars in 2023.  There are a few drawbacks.  You must be willing to leave all your friends and family behind (no "couples" are allowed to go together).  And, since the "Mars One" mission is an attempt at colonization, your ticket is a one-way ticket.  All you have to do is fill out an application and pay the $38 application fee.  CLICK HERE for the summary, HERE for a YouTube video on the project, or HERE for the project homepage (with a button to click on if you wish to apply for a colonist slot).

Really? That soon? Shouldn't someone go first and see if it's safe? And sice no other colonies have been tested in other planets or satelites yet, wouldn't it be more practical to try it somewhere closer to Earth, let's say the Moon?

Hehehe.  Visit the first link in my original post (a Washington Post article) and read the comment I left.

LOL, it seems that common sense is not in their program. I should have read your comment before I posted mine here, we think alike.

One other thing, too.  I watched a SpaceX video posted by someone who appeared knowledgeable ... and he said that MarsOne and SpaceX vehicles are not prepared to handle solar flares if they should occur.  On Earth, we have some atmospheric protection.  Not on Mars.  That applies to the domicile areas as well.  If what he says is true, any Martian colony (or visitor)  could be one solar flare away from death by radiation poisoning.

I'm actually a bit surprised at one thing ... that they even had "domicile" structures.  One of their videos shows that the colony site would be prepared by rovers that precede the arrival of colonists.  And I was thinking, why not locate the colony close to a mountain where rovers could carve/blast out a "cave" area.  Then seal off the caves until the colonists arrived.  Caves would not only provide protection from solar flares and the Sun's heat, but protection from meteors and other space bodies that would have no trouble streaking through the Martian atmosphere without burning up.  Let's face it.  Mars has a lot of impact craters for a reason.

Why not send a tunneler machine first.  Have it run a hole several 100 meters into a crater wall at a slight down angle.  The deeper you go, the safer you are from flares.  Also, you have a greater chance of running into water ice and metals that can used.  Main first project would be a farm.
