ares - mars

Mission to Mars!

So I set Ares in 2048 because I thought it would take everyone that long to send people to Mars, but look! NASA asked Google to finance a one-way manned mission. (Best part of this article: "Twenty years ago you had to whisper [ideas like this] in dark bars and get fired.")

Personally, I agree with the gawker commenters who suggested it should be a reality show.
