Happy Half Term Einstein Class!
I hope that you are having a relaxing break. I have just seen the following video of the Mars One project which will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Crews of four will leave Earth every two years, starting in 2024, with the first unmanned mission being launched in 2018.
Over the last year, people from around the world have been submitting applications to nominate themselves to be part of the project. If chosen, they will be launched into space and will live out the rest of their life on Mars. However this also means that they will never have the opportunity to return back to Earth. What a way to make a dent in the Universe!
Is this something you could do? Tell me your views below. If you did go, what would you miss about life at home the most? The selection process has got down to the last 100 with five of them from the UK. Visit http://www.mars-one.com/ for more information on this historical event
