"Destined to be the biggest media event in history."

Can we send some of the media up there now? I have a few in mind.

Oh! Ya! The radiation thing. Three reasons not to go just yet . . .

No one is going to Mars any time soon. Vision damage and bone loss on a 3 year round trip will sour the expedition. Until artificial gravity is made practical or they can get there in weeks instead of years there won't be any men on Mars.

@ Patchgrabber

If you're one of only a handful of people to take the one-way trip to Mars you'd only be able to brag to other people on Mars. It might not be so impressive to them...

We are using up earths resources faster than the earth can replace them. If humanity were to continue to exist, we need to find another planet to steal resources from. Those that doubt this well ever happen need to understand that alot of rich people understand our NEED to find resources. At the same time, wouldn't it be nice if humanity could save our planet by stop allowing earths resources to be depleted. We have a big sun. We have wind. We have lots of ways to save earth. But count me in as someone who would love to be part of helping humanity by going to mars if that's what it comes to. NO GRAVITY MUST BE FUN!!!!

@LordJim: You bet! It wouldn't necessarily be as good if I were in, say, the third group to go, but to be even one of a handful of people that could say they've been to another planet? Sign me up!

Why does the rocket to bring people to mars has the form of male genitalias?

what kind of sad no life individuals would hold this project more important than their life here on earth?

I would gladly live the rest of my days in tiny structures if it meant I would go down in history as the first person to set foot on Mars. Just thinking about it makes me lacrimose.

Yeah...in 1970 the said we'd have bases on the moon my 1983, and a manned mission to mars in 1981.
They said by 2000 we'd all be flying around on jetpacks. Not gonna happen.

My only question, Is what is the pointÉ and why is my question mark a É.

Think about it, are we going to ship resources back, nope, just to it, which it's expensive as can be to ship water.

Only private firms, so they are going to rip off stupid rich people, I can leave with that. I better not hear them crying to the Governments for funding when it flops and needs to be bailed out.

That is only if they figure out how to protect themselves from the radiation

One-way ticket? No thanks. I've been told that Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.

MONORAILLLL MONORAILLLL MONORAILLLLL

its a money making scam.

the business enterprise is based on a lie that 'everyone in the world will watch'

most people in the world don't have access to a television or any other media device.

freddy - I'd say earlier than that, but I really doubt it'd be in 10 years. Maybe 50.

How are they going to make a profit?


They basically said they're going to make it the biggest media event ever. They would turn it into a massive, worldwide reality show. I'm sure if it did happen it would be huge and they could sell advertising for near Superbowl amounts. It would last for decades, especially considering the success of American Idol and Big Brother.

lol @ DrProfessor

Neat idea but it's hard to take them seriously after such a tacky presentation... And did anyone else think it was a little creepy that they kept saying "the humans" and not "people"?

Since it is intended to be a private venture they have failed in the single most important element of their business model. How are they going to make a profit? If you want to interest private investors you have to be able to explain how they get paid.
