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.

That is awesome! And totally gives weight to your story.

I especially love the part where they say they may/will experiment with the human genome! Because that's totally what my character Aylee is going to do, and I'm sure she feels validated now that she's not completely crazy. :)

I'm starting to think you should now write the Ares mission as the result of a lost bar bet. Or won. I'm not sure which.
