    Yes, it's true! 200,000 people apply to live on Mars. Would you want to go? It's a one way trip only.

    (CNN) -- If you have ambitions of being one of the first people on Mars, listen up: A Dutch company says it is moving along with its plan to send four lucky Earthlings to colonize the Red Planet. The catch: They won't ever come back.....

    How would they communicate with fellow earthlings? :P

    Seriously though, i can only imagine this going like one of those space films where a planet is in distress, a ship goes in and finds out that some major sun activity or something like that occurs and wipes out the whole colony.

    Can we have one of the colonists go mad, start killing the others, then just as he is about to cut down the unlikely lovers, BAM!! SUN SPOT!!!

    The 2 lovers die in flaming agony and the psycho climbs aboard the life vessel, and returns to Earth to wreck havock in the sequel:

    Losers from Mars 2- The Return!!

    What?? Expecting something else?

    If it were underground maybe. An underground facility would be much safer than above-ground. Could not do a one way trip however.

    Depends on the wireless provider they'll offer on Mars. Otherwise... 200k is a pretty ambitious goal. We sent at best... 3-5 people to the moon at any given moment?

    Meh - There's enough just in America to see to keep me happy. The only place outside the US that I really, really, really want to see is Israel. There are other places I'd like to see, but not like I'd like to see Israel. I'm not so interested in leaving the planet forever, or even for longer than a flight to some faraway (but earthbound) destination.

    Did you know that an airplane landing is just a controlled crash between two objects hurling through space?

    How come you want to visit Israel? I want to go there because of all of their amazing technology, and see sites there. Also, my religion is based there, so...
