Elmo Keep writing for Matter:
200,000 brave and/or insane people have supposedly signed up for a one-way mission to Mars. But the truth about Mars One, the company behind the effort, is much weirder (and far more worrying) than anyone has previously reported.
It’s the one way nature of the journey that makes me queasy. I really don’t know whether this is an answer for humanity; to jump ship and colonise another planet.
Still it makes for some interesting reading.
