I bet you also don't believe in Nominative determinism :wink: :twisted: whilst I am also slightly sceptical about the likelihood of success in this venture i do wish them luck when you think about most of the satellites in geostationary orbit are only there because a lot of the population watches a lot of TV and enough ads are sold for that TV for the companies to afford to put them up there so I don't think Mars one business plan is totally unreasonable.But am a bit doubtful about the long term security of a Mars colony made up from reality TV stars but it could be I am only jealous cause I am missing the charisma gene. :wink: :twisted:


The satellite market evolved over decades to its current value - there's no way Mars One can generate billions of dollars in investment needed for its mission just by pitching a reality TV show and some ad space. None. They cannot move forward until they come up with a more realistic financial plan that has a multitude of intermediate steps with their own revenue generation.

I think it depends on virgin, spaceX and other private companies to make this mars goal seem a little bit more realistic. For now, lets hope near-earth orbit will do well. If it goes well, we can hope for more :)
