    Oh come you can't make a title like that and not give us at least an introductory paragraph to explain what this thread is about, that's just not on. Give us some more information please.

    There is a previous thread about the One Way Trip, and the fact that they were asking for applicants.

    Cheers Dywyddyr, any chance you can post a link to the previous thread, because frustratingly I can't find it.

    Nonsense, there's more than one way to get to Mars.

    The idea of going to Mars seems ok, it's just the one way trip aspect that seems to be the problem. It's like equating it to going to a paradise island, sounds great until you get to the being stranded there part. On balance the proposition seems far to much like a space version of "Cast Away". Just quite why 78,000 people would sign up for this seems puzzling.
