MARS ONE PROJECT
TICKET TO MARS (ONE WAY ONLY)
06 October 2013

As a vital Adventurer, passionate for new challenges, I have always said that I would love to have the opportunity to travel into space, and I've done a lot of times the joke that if a UFO appeared in one of my trips, and extraterrestrial invites me up, I wouldn't hesitate .

We have to be very careful with what we say or think, because life is so curious that some time can propose us some challenges according to our words or thoughts.

Last July I had knowledge of an astronaut selection program open to all people by the company MARS ONE, in order to go to Mars in 2023, with no return ticket ... It means, to stay there to live (or die) for the rest of their days.

Both the selection, the journey and the stay on Mars, will be broadcast live on television, similar to the "Big Brother" TV program. Promoters say it will be the most spectacular media event in history, and this will also be a key point in order to finance the project, which will amount about 6,000 million Euros .

The organizers are getting tens of thousands of requests (and each one pays 25€ to finance the initial phase, and to filter out not really interested people) . In July 2015 they plan to have selected 24 finalists, in order to choose the 4 firsts travelers to Mars.  Later on, every two years, 2 more astronauts will join them.

Some say it is a suicide or an impossible program, others that it is a very interesting challenge and a big step for science and human interplanetary travel; even it is the first step to real space exploration. There are very powerful people and companies behind the project, even endorses it T.Hooft Gerard , a theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner 1999 .

You all can think what you want... but I recognize that for me has been a challenge only being aware of this issue, and having being thinking seriously about it for over two months. Today I write this Post because I have decided not to send the video for the initial application... Even considering myself an adventurer, and being passionate about experimenting and discovering new spaces, challenges and territories in my lifetime, I have to manage my limits, and I am too much in love of my planet, my wife, my family and my roots, that even am willing to face the risks required to go wherever (including, I hope, someday, the outer space), however complex or incredible whatsoever, but whenever I have the chance and the goal of returning home.

What would you do? ...

Es peor un año en España que una vida en marte, en mi opinión. Yo no iré a marte porque soy daltónico.

Comparto mucho más la decisión final que el tener el espíritu aventurero que tu tienes. Saber que puedo decidir mi vida día a día es lo que me mantiene en acción. Cada día decido continuar compartiendo mi vida con mi esposa. Cada día decido ir a una sesión con un cliente. Cada día decido si voy a comprar algo. Quiero poder decidir cada día, y un viaje sin retorno me llevaría a la pérdida del libre albedrío. Grácias por el post, que suma a lo poco que ya conocía del proyecto ;-)

Per cert..., la meva opinió es que has perdut 2 messos importants de la teva trajectoria vital pensant amb aixó, que no puc creure que ho aixis fet, per molt decepcionat que estiguis; desprès, aquests 2 messos, els necessitaràs per continuar endavant.

Una frase que no sé de qui és :

"La oscuridad restaura todo aquello que la luz no pudo arreglar".

La Tierra es nuestro Parque Temático del Universo cercano, todavía por descubrir; necesitaríamos muchas vidas para entender su complejidad y no vale la pena dedicar la única que tenemos a colonizar otros planetas del sistema solar cuando ni siquiera hemos intentado, la mayoría, entenderla un poco, solo nos interesa él que podemos recibir de ella.
Ahora y como siempre con este programa se intenta lo mismo que con otros, crear una gran audiencia en que lo importante es el como se relacionan 4 seres humanos, que seguro que son de ambos sexos, en un planeta que no es el suyo. TODO UN ESPECTÁCULO nuevamente creado para satisfacer el morbo y el bolsillo de la raza humana civilizada, en definitiva un paso más de auto-destrucción de los que nos llamamos civilizados.
Albert, continua gaudint de tot alló que ens ofereix aquesta, la nostra terra, i de tot el que l'esser humà pot crear i estimar aquí, a la TERRA.
