Mars One hopes to establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. It has created a technical plan for this ambitious mission that is “as simple as possible” and says it has identified potential suppliers, such as SpaceX, for every component of the mission.
The Neatherland-based Mars One plans to fund the mission by making it a reality TV show, in the “biggest media spectacle in history” with help from Mars One ambassador Paul Römer, co-creator of the globally successful Big Brother reality TV show. Watch the astronauts make their journey, and also choose which candidate gets to go (as in the Big Brother show).

Whoever goes to Mars should be chosen on the basis of qualification not by popularity from a TV audience. This is as far from American ƒükking Idol as you can get, and they want to apply the same stupid principals? A one way ticket to Mars may not be in your best interest to begin with, I'll take my chances here on this ƒükkêd up rock, thanks anyway.

What a great idea, who's more qualified to decide who gets to go to Mars than an informed general public. chuckle.gif

The article mentions this I assume.
Quote:2016: Supply mission launched for Mars — to land October 2016 with its cargo: 2500 kilograms of food.
