Want to go to Mars? Dutch organisation Mars One says it will open applications imminently. It would be a one-way trip, and the company hopes to build a community of settlers on the planet.

Uncharted waters, mountains or far away lands have always drawn explorers. History books show that desire for adventure, even in the face of extreme danger, did not deter the likes of Columbus or Magellan.

There's a $38 application fee. They are going to establish the first permanent human settlement on Mars, ten years from now.

I wonder if it would be cost effective to ship out all physically fit lifers held in the US at this time to Mars. It could be the new penal colony. They could even ship out a Fosters brewery and some kangaroos to really rub it in.
