Yes. Lets book a one way trip to mars when we dont even have the technology to get to the moon and establish a base.

We've had the technology for decades. What we don`t have is a good reason to spend all that money.

The idea behind the Mars One mission is to pay for Mars exploration by making it a reality show. Seriously. They're planning to have video feeds of all the "characters," who will be chosen by the public, and air the show during prime time with sponsors. It`s either crazy or brilliant. I haven`t decided which yet.

But if the whole venture goes like other settlements in new worlds, it`ll go something like this:

1. Colonists, who have little clue of what they`re getting into, set off with much fanfare to the New World.

2. Said colonists are able, just barely, to subsist in New World and eagerly await a supply ship, which will make things much better.

3. Back in the Old World, new priorities intervene: war, financial crisis, natural disaster, etc. Resupply ship is delayed, cancelled, or destroyed by mishap.

4. Colonists go mad with hunger and resort to cannibalism.

Should make for some gripping telebision. =O.O=

There are some alarmingly naive people in those applications. They have not thought through the concept of 1-way properly.

Dear Ted, you are stupid. We have the tech and ability but the moon hasn't anything worth colonizing for. Mars on the other hand has rich deposits of resources for eventual self sustainability and expansion without help from home as well as the highest chance for some terraforming.
