hmmm... Mutual of Mars maybe ;-).

But, er, I would be careful about jumping on rockets under those circumstances having read science fiction writer C. M. Kornbluth's classic 1951 story "The Marching Morons." In it, to combat rampant overpopulation on earth, people are offered a free vacation--I think it was on Venus. Of course, the rockets were just dropped into the sun, alleviating the overpopulation thing. As the story ends, the guy who planned all this is being forced onto one of the rockets. :)

According to The Hitch Hikers Guide, that's how Earth was colonised. Hairdressers, and bank clerks.

Hitchhiker's also claims the meaning of life is 42... I've asked for a recount.
