Did you know that there's this Dutch non-profit organization which has an ambitious aerospace project through which they plan on sending us to Mars in 2023.
Yes I did say us.
Because everyone can apply.
Some view it as a suicide mission - since it's a one way trip and all that jazz.
But what do you do once you get there?
How do you kill time?
Will you make music videos like Chris Hadfield??
Are you expected to be the Adam & Eve equivalent for the Red Planet clothed in an astronaut suit instead of leaves?
Or just contact aliens like Jodie Foster in the movie Contact?
Is it going to be like a picnic?
Apparently 600 people from China have already applied.
Which got me thinking: Is China really that bad?
