“Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it's the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. Science fiction is central to everything we've ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don't know what they're talking about.” ― Ray Bradbury
You probably familiar with sci-fi movies, particularly movies that took place on Mars such as Total Recall (1990), Mission to Mars (2000), Red Planet (2000), Doom (2005) and etc. Have you ever imagined if those movies become reality? Most of you dying to see it if those are real. Living on Mars, traveling through time and space, having a high technology, living side by side with aliens, we hope that's not only fantasies.
Just like the past 44 years ago, we make a history on the Moon. The next 10 years, human will make another bizarre history on space by establishing a permanent colony on Mars. It's called MARS ONE, a private spaceflight project led by Dutch entrepreneur, Bas Lansdorp. It's a not for profit foundation and no government interference.
They've been opening a recruitment since June 2013, even YOU (regular man/woman with a good sense of humor, no knowlwdge about engineering, not a scientist) can join them. When I knew about it I was so freaking exciting and gonna apply (almost apply). But when I read it again for one more time, IT'S A ONE WAY TICKET. You will not go back to your lovely Earth, you gotta leave behind all the things you have, family, friends, job, and your whole life to die on Mars. Once you sign the contract, you sign for your own death.
I've tried to sign up to the website MARS-ONE, well I was loosing my mind almost apply for it but I found that you have to pay $8 for the registration. The cost depends on GDP of your country. I was like "Oh I have to pay for the registration? Okay doesn't matter, I change my mind" LOL
The participant will be leaving Earth in 2022 with a looooong ride to Mars. It takes about 6 months, and arrive in 2023. For you who doesn't wanna join them but dying for curiosity how they survive on Mars, don't worry. You guys will see them on television. Yeah they said it's gonna be a reality TV, maybe it's sort of Big Brother. They will build their oxygen with plants and make their own food, that's what we're gonna watch.
Some people think it's just a hoax, especially the China. China media claim that the private Mars colony mission is a scam. Yeah that could be true, because I still think that we don't have enough technology (oops I doubt those scientist, sorry). Maybe if they make it for the next 20 years, it'll make sense. To be honest, we're not ready for it. Are you gonna taking risk to be the first colony on Mars? Sorry I'm not the man. I bet there's gonna be some terrifying accident.
It's not easy living on Mars. The high radiation, the weather that could boiled your blood, the solar wind, the dust storm, it's like living on the desert. You probably will meet an alien, are you ready to make a contact even it's a bad guy alien? And oh em gee, the water ....
Guys on Mars, please listen to me. If you guys find the water on Mars, don't drink it! Whatever happen, do not drink it. Drink and you'll die. Whovian knows the reason ― Doctor Who (The Water of Mars)
Are you ready to make your dream come true? Are you ready living your fantasies? Are you ready for the adventure? Are you ready to make a history? Are you ready to meet Mr. Alien? Are you ready taking the risk?
If you say yes to all the questions, then lets sign up and apply!! MARS-ONE PROJECT
