Elon Musk (founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX) presents plan to start 80.000 strong colony on Mars!!
Elon Musk, the billionaire founder and CEO of the private spaceflight company SpaceX, wants to help establish a Mars colony of up to 80,000 people by ferrying explorers to the Red Planet for perhaps $500,000 a trip.

In Musk's vision, the ambitious Mars settlement program would start with a pioneering group of fewer than 10 people, who would journey to the Red Planet aboard a huge reusable rocket powered by liquid oxygen and methane.

"At Mars, you can start a self-sustaining civilization and grow it into something really big," Musk told an audience at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London on Friday (Nov. 16). Musk was there to talk about his business plans, and to receive the Society’s gold medal for his contribution to the commercialization of space.

Who would want to live on Mars? Have you seen it? The earth is the most beautiful planet that I know of right now. The only thing fucking it up are the evil inhabitants. Send them all away to Mars and then hopefully there space shuttle will break down on that arid planet.

The problem is that no one that would be willing to part with half a million would be willing to go in the first wave. We need some kind of scholarship program for the first pioneers.

Considering they'll most likely die, it seems fair to me.

Still, if it can be done, it would be interesting to try.

Possible i guess, from what ive seen there are several larges cities buried just under the surface, these are ancient and are semi utilised by thousands of people. Small bases, installations and rag tag communities litter the surface, and there are loners living on their own with dwellings built into the sides of ridges.

hmmmm
500k to live underground and only go outside in a full pressure suit.
Eat long shelf like foods til you get the hydroponics working
and then spend hours a day to keep it going.

or spend 500k and live in a nice place on earth...
no brainer.

An expedition is one thing-go,explore,come back.
But live your whole life on Mars? No thanks-my body is made for earth.
