The only catch is that you wont return to earth.

Article here (http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/offbeat/8222915/to-mars-and-beyond/)

Humans could one day colonise planets such as Mars under a NASA plan to send astronauts into space knowing that they would not return.

Even with conventional technology humans could be on Mars' moons by 2030.

But NASA has a far grander plan - the Hundred Years Starship program.

Poll: Would you go one-way to Mars?

NASA’s Ames Research Centre has teamed up with DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, to develop large spacecraft capable of supporting life for 100 years.

The idea is to build space craft for a one-way mission and have everything needed to sustain humans for one hundred years.

The astronauts physiology would change because of the long-distance flight, with bone structure and muscles being altered.

It could take the intrepid space explorers nine months to get to the red planet.

But NASA is hoping that the chance of becoming the founding fathers of a new colony could be enough to lure those willing to explore the final frontier, to explore strange new worlds, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Judging by the ending, is there a chance this ship will be named Enterprise? :p

Seriously though, that's rather interesting. On one hand it's pretty damn cool, but on the other you're leaving behind everything you've ever known. So much could go wrong, definitely wouldn't be a decision to be made lightly.

But it would be a step forward as far as getting off this rock :p

Pretty interesting read.

Yeah, it'd definitely be a tough decision, but I'm sure there would be thousands lining up for a chance to be the first humans to colonize Mars.

Thanks for sharing by the way. :)

Lol, that's exactly what I was thinking.

The astronauts will be babies when taking off??
Or, -dear baby, you were born on Mars. lol

I'd absolutely love to go to another planet. But I'd hate to leave all my valuable memories behind on earth. I'd go to Mars if I knew I could return to Earth at any time I wanted to.

A one way trip isn't something to take lightly, even if you're going to another country, let alone another planet.

I wonder how much the fare would be. :p

I think they have dial-up internet on there...
Well, some form of internet. I believe it's dial-up. We had someone from NASA come to our school a few months ago, and they said they had internet on the ship. Well... The space station, at least. :p

AFAIK it takes quite some time for information to get from Earth to Mars. A whole day or something along those lines. So internet on Mars would be extremely slow :p.

If they did this, and it was successful, then I imagine it would provide a whole boost to the "industry" and push for a lot of changes in space travel. Following that I figure it wouldn't be long before we figured out how to travel faster than light, or at least faster :p That's when I'd wanna go :p

That bit about the musles and bones changing over the flight, would be more relevant to the reduced gravity of mars.

Some science fiction books speculate that new generations born on mars would end up eight or nine feet tall, and be able to jump twenty feet in one bound.

In other word, they would be almost an alien race compaired to us earthers, and they would hate the heavy gravity of earth.

Mind you, they would make a great basketball team :rolleyes:

It is so easy to prove, because there should be a load of moon rovers (cars), and the bottom part of each lunar lander, and the USA flags, and experimental equiment, all still lying around on the moon.

But have we seen any pictures of them from the space telescope :p

No. I meant to be settled on the moon.

I am the first to think that the only "natural" way will colonize space. If it still remains possible life on earth.
But prepare now a trip to live on Mars, out there, for one hundred years?

Something strange is happening at NASA.:confused:

Do you think that, suddenly, someone can get a rocket and live one hundred years in the space?

And the cost that this entails?
I had always thought that a lunar station was the appropriate remedy.
Close to the Earth, terrain on which to become accustomed to low gravity conditions, the possibility of varied resources: Moon-Earth (combined).
In addition, launching a rocket from the moon is 9 times more effective, at least, that from Earth.
A rocket launched from the moon does not have to spend those huge fuel tanks only in the ignition and to overcome the Earth's atmosphere.

All this fuel can be used to travel very far if is not consumed in the begining.

*That* is a pretty good argument there. Like I said building some sort of permanent facility on the moon might provide training as well, which you touched on. Good staging area, and if they were to build a large enough vessel to transport all of those people and supplies, it might be more effective to build it at some form of orbital construction yard, something that could be built on say... the moon :p

Well, if they had gardens on the ship and were able to construct buildings that would withstand the elements then I think they'd be alright. The ice on Mars might provide a source of water as well- assuming they could get to it and collect it. 'Course idk if it'd be drinkable :p
I wonder if they'd attempt any sort of teraforming, I've read a few theories about how to do it...

I'm reminded of that classic star trek line

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Sure.
But there is a saying: "God will provide", "Nature will provide".

Sure, when we are sufficiently prepared for the trip, all these stones on the way, all these planets will be the aid needed to reach the destination.

I sincerely believe that if we need to go there, we will find the way to go.

Rocket fuel is used up extremely quickly. Food can be freeze-dried and such, and freeze-dried stuff weighs almost nothing.

Some think it is an ancient glass tube transport system, what do you think caused this, natural or artificial ?

it looks artificial to me

I heard also Mars has the biggest mountain in the solar system

Rocket fuel is used up extremely quickly. Food can be freeze-dried and such, and freeze-dried stuff weighs almost nothing.

I think they're doing the one way trip thing to reduce costs (it requires a vast amount of fuel and energy for round trip) and because they wanna colonize mars.

I say we ship all these gangbangers and hoodlums to Mars.

Will we call the new colony "New Australia"? :p

Some people have been watching too many sci-fi films. :D

That looks like some ancient canal where water may have once streamed through. Maybe that's how the unusual pattern in the rock formed?

Britain and other places shipped a lot of convicts to Australia. It's how the Aborigines died out, really.

Report him, hurry, before the statute of limitations prevents you from doing so!

Maybe that's how the unusual pattern in the rock formed?Sorry to say, but thats definately no known water pattern being 90 degrees to the 'flow', and it has been proven that the surface of these 'tubes' are refective. It definately needs closer inspection.

And same goes for the so called 'Mars vegetation', which again is found in different patterns all over mars.

Just google 'mars vegetation', the patterns also change over the seasons.....

I didn't mean that as an insult :o

I wonder if it could be some form of lava tube?

I would consider, if they found a way to bring back Mars magnetic barrier. :)Without it, might as well consider yourself a cooked chicken.
Mars had "life" before earth, but because of it's size and distance, it lost it. ( or so I heard):o

It is quite well known in the conspiricy sites. it goes like this....

Mars was origionally a habitable moon of planet X a very long time ago, but planet X blew up, why ? who knows ?

The rubble created the asteriod belt, and its moon which is mars, is now a planet in its own right, but has a lot of debris damage on the side that faced Planet X when it blew up.

Whether true or not, it would be very hard to prove, but it could be one reason why we see unusual anomolies on mars, such as the face of mars, the D&M pyramid, possible transport tubes, posible vegetation, etc.

Only once mankind gets to Mars and explores without any NASA type cover-ups, then we would know whether Mars had been previously colonised :cln:

face of mars?

well...there might be a thriving underground society for all we know....certainly explains all these random "malfunctions" that the probes have undergone through the years:p

Maybe they dont like being probed :eek:
