Could You Leave Your Spouse For The Chance To Settle On Mars? by NifemiOlu(m): 7:48pm On Sep 14, 2014
Sonia Van Meter describes herself as an "aspiring Martian" -she hopes to be one of the first humans on the planet in 10 years' time. But it would mean never seeing her husband again. Van Meter herself pays tribute to her loved ones, saying: "I am incredibly fortunate in that I have a remarkable family to leave behind."Mars One's plan is to ship four Marstronauts out to the red planet every two years, beginning in 2024, until there is a settlement of up to 40 - the finance coming from a reality TV show made by the people behind Big Brother.

For those going on this journey, please try not to come back at all and be warned, suicide is not an option.

As long as human beings (probably mad scientists) will be there with me what will be the difference between Mars and Earth.

Why not @ OP. I would love to go and experience this. But what the organisers of this Mars one project didn't give explanation on is the issue of sex and reproduction. Will the first martians be allowed to have sex and have babies? According to them they will be sending 4 people to mars to represent humanity (2 males 2 females)

It's 40 people over the period of time. 20 females and 20 males. I guess they will be made to reproduce and populate Mars.

you don't understand what am saying. Or maybe you don't know where this guys are going to . Mars with no oxygen, thin atmosphere, is that the kind of environment you want to raise a kid? And do you think Mars One project is providing space for child rearing. According to Mars One packs of contraceptives will be packed along with them. If actually they really wanna procreate they won't pack contraceptives. They have to check,research and make a better analysis of Mars than the info we have with us on earth. In future (maybe 20yrs after the first landing) the martians might be permitted to procreate .
