Willing to go on a one way trip to Mars …

I would definitely volunteer to go to Mars. It is a fantasy of mine to explore new world just like the Star Trek series; Space the Final Frontiers…Imagine all the amazing things that one can do on the planet besides site seeing. Seeding the planet. Terraforming and repopulating the planet and creating people in your own image, etc., megalomaniac ? You bet. It would be fun to see where will this lead to in 2023 and how things will turn out if everything goes as planned. The technology and all kinds of amenities we have already. It takes some money and will power and collective push. 

If you’ve always wanted to live on a distant world, Dutch company Mars One wants to give you your chance to settle on the red planet. There’s only one catch: You’ll never be able to return to Earth.
Next year, Mars One will hold a worldwide lottery to select 40 people to train to be civilian astronauts. That group will be sent to live in a desert simulation for three months, after which the initial pool will be whittled down to 10. By 2023, this group will be sent to Mars to form the first permanent human settlement.
According to Bas Lansdorp, founder of Mars One, “We will send humans to Mars in 2023. They will live there the rest of their lives. There will be a habitat waiting for them, and we’ll start sending four people every two years.”
