What are your views on Mars One? Will it Work?


I recently wrote a Hub here on HubPages about Mars One and am really interested to know what other peoples views are on the plans being set out and to discuss Mars One itself. Do you think it will work? What challenges do you think the Astronauts (the applicants) will face leading up to leaving Earth and during their time on Mars? What Technical Challenges do you think will face here on Earth? How do you think the events of Mars One will affect religion and religious societies? I'd be really interested to know your opinion and discuss this question.

    Thank you for your answer James, I completely agree, without trying, we will never know; discovery does indeed involve inherent mystery. How far do you think too far is? Would you ever consider going to Mars yourself?

    I often wonder--what will we do if we get there? Look around? Learn more about the Martian surface? For what? There's no life there. All we're going to find are red rocks and red sand.

    Thank you for your answer dashingscorpio, what makes you think it will have no effect? I agree that man is only limited by his imagination, do you think we want it bad enough?

    Thank you for your answer Stargrrl, what makes you think there will be problems? Eventually the part of our race on Mars will inevitably evolve, I guess that may in some ways make them superior to us here on Earth. You can't just buy tickets for it.

    Thank you for your answer Debra, this is true, there have been issues with Gravity levels, the only thing we know about the life support will have produced a breathable atmosphere of 0.7 bar pressure, 3000 litres of water and 120 kg of Oxygen.
