You just want to get rid of me  sad24:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

I can make a list of those I want strapped to the front of the probe.  Keith Vaz, Putin, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump for a start

Even when I applied I was half expecting something like this to happen, the Mars One venture has gone bankrupt.

It does appear that I may have been part of a much smaller group of maniacs adventurers who signed up though...  rubschin:

Shame in a way but they had the wrong business plan.  If they'd asked for crowdfunding to send Corbers, Abbott, Boris and Trump there (other names are available) they'd have all the money they needed

On one hand it's a chance to go into space but on the other the rocket tests aren't filling me with confidence..  rubschin:
