Going to Mars

7 posts in this topic

I recently have read an article in the magazine that a company has plans of reaching the planet Mars. But that trip is not for the astronauts but for the passengers. Yeah, it will be like a space ship to commute from earth to Mars. The main problem now is how to lessen the cost because right now the computation is about 1 million dollars for each passenger of the space ship with a capacity of 100 passenger. But the gargantuan plan was to create a space station in Mars so that it can be inhabited by earthlings for a long time. Now, do you subscribe to this idea?

Well, to be honest, we are fast running out of space on earth and have already speeded up the uglification and destruction of our beautiful planet. I think heading to an unknown planet such as Mars has its own charm and appeal, of course, it is only for people who are adventurous and would think nothing of hardships in the process. I think if I had that kind of money, I would signup for the voyage to the unknown and uninhabited planet such as Mars,.

This whole situation is way different than what we see on the movie Total Recall.  Supposedly in the future, the price for going to Mars isn't that outrageous.  It would be similar to a typical flight from Japan to the USA, or maybe even one from New York to Los Angeles.  However, at the present time, as with robots, the only one who can afford anything would be the rich or funded by some top government program like NASA.

I've read more than two years ago about an ongoing selection for people who are willing to go to Mars. The latest I heard was that this had been shortlisted to 100. My female co-worker was one of only two Filipinos on the shortlist and she said that she hasn't heard from the organization. The trip is supposed to be a one-way trip so they're not expecting to go back to earth at all. She's single and I supposed she wants this historical adventure, but it's not for me. I'm all for it, though. I hope it gets the funding it needs. It won't be too far-fetched to imagine the logo of big companies like Nike, McDonald's, or KFC on Mars.

I heard they are going to broadcast this on live TV. I just hope they get there ok and even if they do make it they will have to survive being stuck inside forever with their crew being the only people they will see in person every again. Earth will be just a dot in the sky to them but I think someone has to do this and they will be very brave. We need to move off Earth because its getting too populated.

I believe you are talking about the Mars One project. They said that there are scientist living in Mars right now and they are the first to inhabit the planet. I'm not sure though if it was really a success because I haven't seen a single article about their stay in Mars. I bet as of writing those guys are still on their pod travelling in space. The only thing that didn't convince me though is that there are people who were chosen whose age are above 50's. I saw online that one of the flights is scheduled on 2023, how old do you think those guys are by the time they start the trip? I have nothing against seniors but come on! Do you think they are going to survive there long?

Actually, the cost of developing Mars might actually be more than developing places like Siberia, isolated parts of The Sahara, under the ocean, or Anarctica.  In that case, should we invest the time and effort?    Well, actually, the cost of developing the underwater stuff might match the Mars stuff due to the fact that oxygen isn't present.
