Seems to be a hard sell, but maybe Elon can pull it off

NO WAY - Space scares me! Drop me in a submersible to the deepest of oceans but space.....out of question. Whoever does take that ticket has my respect for sure.

Before marriage and kids- I think I would have loved the adventure. Just so much more cautious since then. I feel responsible for the decisions I make on behalf of my children's lives and their futures. But agree with Elizabeth- big respect for someone brave enough to go?

I would love to try this. I don't have kids or a husbsnd but I'd miss my parents. I think this would be a great opportunity to someone flexible enough to try.

How about if you took your husband and kids to Mars with you?

I think, even as a father, I would go. There is no greater thing that being at the forefront of the betterment of our species. I'd like to think my children would come with me. I know there is the risk of death involved, but there is risk of death every day no matter where you are. I'd probably choose not to be among the first group to lower that risk of death, however I'd still go. I'd like to eleven my children have been brought up with the same sense of who we are as a species and how the planet needs to become a singular nation before we can achieve (almost) a species that survives the ages

Would you still go knowing it was a one way ticket and you unlikely to see your kids again?

I am one of the Mars One candidates three other South Africans and I are busy with the selection process to go on a one way trip, believe me if I could join Elon Musk I definitely will.

That's amazing man! When will you find out if you've made it through the selection process?

I'd not only take a ticket but also give up my left arm..no wait, rather my left pinkie toe for that ticket. I'm really excited about this space exploration stuff. We've messed up this planet, it's time we accept that an start finding alternative solutions.

If the earth is about to explode or something is about to hit the earth I will be the first to sign up.

The first trip would be legendary and each passenger would be placed in history forever. I would give my life to one of them.

Only if I get enough women to come with me to repopulate the planet, I'd go from planet to planet if that be the case.

I am sure this is out of our budget but if I could go I definitely would. That would be the ultimate vacation spot. Also you would be making history and live on forever.
