A few years ago I met someone who had signed up for Mars One. This project intends to send a group of people to Mars and establish the first colony of humans on the planet starting in 2025. It’s basically a one-way ticket.

I find it very difficult to imagine how someone can decide to abandon everything. Family, friends, a country, and even the planet you’ve always known.
