Elon Musk's Plan For Colonizing Mars

Geeks In Space: Over 200,000 People Apply To Leave Earth Forever and Begin Colonizing Mars

Mars One Header

If you were offered the chance to become one of the first human beings on Mars and begin colonizing the planet—with the one teeny tiny little catch that you would never be able to return to Earth, never see your family again, and would die (one way or another) on the Red Planet—would you do it?

Most people—even the most fascinated and excited by the thought of being the first humans to go there and explore the unexplored and begin colonizing another world—would likely say no to such a proposition. And have no trouble doing so. This is because there’s just so many variables, and the commitment and risk are simply far too great. But some people would take this leap. Or at least say they will (rehearsal is a much different performance than the actual show, in front of those bright lights and with all eyes on you).

Continue below for more and to see a video of the people behind this unbelievable mission discuss how it will work and the timeline.

Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Netflix Review: Doctor Who – The Waters Of MarsDoctor Who: The Waters Of Mars
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Graeme Harper
Produced by Russell T. Davies
Starring David Tennant, Lindsay Duncan, Peter O’Brien, Aleksander Mikic
BBC Worldwide
Originally Broadcast: November 15, 2009

With the landing of Curiosity on Mars by NASA during this previous week, and the impending premiere of the next Doctor Who series this month, today’s Netflix Review was an easy choice. The Waters Of Mars is a crowning achievement from the Russell T. Davies and David Tennant epoch of Doctor Who, exploring a darker side of the Time Lord from Gallifrey previously unexplored, while he pops by the Red Planet for a bit a visit.

Set in 2059, the Doctor materializes his TARDIS on Mars with the goal of a bit of wandering and a bit of fun. Companionless since Donna Noble departed, he is essentially running from both responsibility and prophecy, the Doctor comes across the first Earth colony on the Red Planet, named Bowie Base One. Knowing that the base is destined for disaster, the Doctor finds himself in a crucial tipping point – should he interfere with a fixed point in time?

Can James Cameron Bring Us A 3D Movie Straight From The Surface Of Mars?

Mars Rover Curiosity

In 2011, NASA will launch their Mars Science Laboratory mission along with the mechanical rover, fittingly named Curiosity. The rover will be heading for the surface of Mars, where it will cover as much terrain as possible in another attempt to learn more about the habitat, the possibilities of future colonizations of the planet, and of course, any life that may or may not exist there.

We’ve heard about missions like this before, and sometimes great photographs are sent back, but how could you take Mars exploration to a whole new level? Well, if you’re the director of the biggest movie ever made like Avatar director James Cameron happens to be, then you throw a 3D camera on top of this rover, of course!
