The discussion at work turned towards a rather amusing topic about Mars One.
I found that quite interesting. More than interesting I found it a lot more sensible and applicable to me. As a father of two daughters I found it safe to send off my daughters by 2023 to Mars rather than have them on earth. Imagine what planet earth might be then? We might have to pay to talk to each other cos it involves breathing in more oxygen (which then might be sold at a premium!), plundering might be the order of the day, harassment might be legal as long as there is no physical damage and what not!! Come to think of this and more, isnt a one way trip to Mars a lot more sensible options for parents with daughters. It should right? Unless we send some really retarded people alongside to the planet to muck it up more!
