Apparently NASA is looking for volunteers to go on a one way trip to put humans on Mars. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/01/opinion/01krauss.html You'd go down in history, and probably have a town or two named after you on Mars, but you'd never set foot on Earth again. Instead of bringing 4 people there and back, you'd have about 20 people with you, so it might be okay. questions What would it take for you to go on such a mission? What necessities would you bring with you?
