Virgle - Mars Colonization Project


Recommended Posts

For thousands of years,

the human race has spread out across the Earth, scaling mountains and plying the oceans, planting crops and building highways, raising skyscrapers and atmospheric CO2 levels, and observing, with tremendous and unflagging enthusiasm, the Biblical injunction to be fruitful and multiply across our world's every last nook, cranny and subdivision.

Earth has issues, and it's time humanity got started on a Plan B. So, starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars.

Check the rest of the story here:

..and a little ad for the project, devoted to human (i know you 'll love this):

Your wife hasn't cooked, and your dog just p1ssed on the porch.

Scenario sounds familiar ? :brow:

In other words, you 're feelin' suicidal today... :yes:

Tired of all the traditional ways of killin' yourself?

Do you think suicide bombing is a clich

hello everybody,

ya, the quiz is nice....

loved this on:

10. If I were to find myself a passenger on a cramped three-month journey from Earth to Mars with nothing to do with my free time except play a thousand consecutive games of backgammon with a fellow crew member whom I didn't particularly like to begin with, I would probably:

a) Kick some serious backgammon butt, yo.

B) Be sure to lose enough games to ensure that my fellow player doesn't build up unsustainable levels of frustration and go postal.

c) Go postal.

don't know which one to pick though :biggrin:

btw:

there are lots of video clips from "virgle pioneers" on youtube... :blink:

some of them should really be send to mars :rolleyes:
