They go to Mars because there is already life there...everybody is not stupid. Do people think we are the only living in this whole universe, what a waste of space...NASA know that there is life on Mars, the people that goes there will be ambassadors, why send ambassadors if they are not going to engage with other living beings. NASA has been going up and down to Mars since the early 50`s, or maybe earlier...

Why are they zooming off to Mars? The Moon is much closer, more easily accessible and definitely provides a better emotional/psychologi cal environment for the astronauts.
It's just daft going off to Mars on just theories!

It's an opportunity, too late for Earth to change it's stupid and rabid ways. The first to go there can dictate the rules and the first to arrive there with a capital gains plan, should be put in a pod and shipped further out into space immediately with just a few rations. Anyone going there should be scrutinized for any discrepancies that might betray a delusional and/or psychotic character. With much luck, Mars could become the ideal place where sane people would want to be.

I wonder if there will be any Bankers, money men & women, & politicians ?

Errr NO I don't think so, if any EVER arrive on Mars it would be when all the hard work is done.

( film pans out to show a messed up Earth)

Its a corporate event, being sold as an adventure to child minded fools.

What has planet mars done to any one. Why should this planet have to be invaded by humans. Let us be content in knowing that some humans have ruined planet Earth with greed and, wars. Another planet with the likes of George Bush, Tony Blair, and, cronies? Unthinkable!!

Sorry Evans but the mentally unstable won't be going either. Enjoy your time on the third rock from the sun.
On second thought, maybe they should select you.

Sounds like the premise for a REALLY BAD reality show...

Part 2.

Every So-Called Religion has it's Bad-Apples and Twisted-Haters in them, wherein Not 1 of them will be Welcome on Mars.
Non-Racist , Non-Homophobic, Non-Muslim-Hating, Non Hate or Venum-Spewing-Decent -Thinking-Good-Natur ed-Positive Humans will be Welcome There. Period!!!


Mr.Evans 01.01.2014 05:05

Part 1.
I hope that Not 1 Faux Religious Thinking Idiot goes there,(None)because there will be Dumb-Thinking-Racist -Bigoted-Ignorant-Ha te-Spewing-Venum-Spe wing-In-Humans like Adnonia Chanos there who will Continue this Evil-Racist-Faux-Rel igious Dung there on Mars which is Completely Useless and Wrong and Evil!
No So-Called Religion or So-Called Human whom Actively Practices these Faux Religions,which Actively Permits Hate,Acts of Hate,Homophobia,Raci sm,and/or Hate Speech should go to Mars.
No Faux Religions Are Welcome On Mars, which includes Faux Catholics,Faux KKKristians and Faux Judaism,and Faux Islam.


Adnonia Chanos 01.01.2014 00:14

I hope they don't bring Islam (the cancer) to the new planet
