What is the present program that is signing up tens of thousands of people to be chosen as the final handful to travel to Mars (for good) and colonise it?

Yes, Philip. :clap: What do you mites think of the idea - would you sign up for a project that takes you for six months through Space until you land up on the barren world of Mars, having to colonise it and having no option ever to return to Earth? I certainly have no interest in such a venture. What say the rest?

If I was younger and single it would be something I might consider. Yes, there are things you would miss about Mama Earth, but can you imagine the thrill of pioneering a new world and making it habitable (in some way or form).

For note, I'm a SF tragic and these are the type of stories I've read since a wee lad.

I'm not brave enough to take that step into the great unknown, but I like it here so that's not a problem.

Philip, the answer depends on whether you mean visible or magnetic rings. :wink:
