    Seems incredibly risky. Like you say, they already know they're not coming back. Hazards include a constantly depleting oxygen, fuel, food, and water supply, plus maintaining proper course and radio contact. However, just because it's risky doesn't mean we shouldn't do it. If they know the dangers, and are willing to face them for adventure and new frontiers, I wholeheartedly respect their decision.

    How young?  I would find it incredibly implausible that children would be selected to go--unless you're doing it in the same style as the CW's "The 100."

      If I'm remembering correctly, it's young adults. Probably all at least age 18. It'd be pretty unethical if they weren't old enough to understand what they're getting into.

      No kids, unless age 19 is a child. According to my updates & press releases received, candidates are ages 19 thru 60, but many in the semi-final 100 competitors are in the 20s. Final cut to 24 people, six teams of four is to complete by end of 20

      I would think 18 would be too young, and that thirty somethings or twenty somethings would go.
