Not much to say about this, really. I'm extremely interested in what develops with this project. Which of you would be willing to make this trip yourselves, at the present moment? Would living a full life on earth first have an impact on your decision? In other words, would we here be more likely to take this trip at 85 years of age, as opposed to 25 years of age? It's going to be different for each person, of course, but I'm curious as to what the opinions of the community are on this.

At the age of 20, or even 40, I would have jumped at the chance to go.  I'm 72 now, and the bod' is not in good shape anymore, so the answer now is probably no.

However, even if I were younger, my signing-up to go would be conditional on the problem of radiation on the long trip there being solved 10 years from now.  From what I've read, it's a rather large problem that may take longer than that to solve.

I would never want to go to Mars. It's a desert. It has nothing to offer.

Manned space travel is limited.

There's a big universe out there and the best way to explore it is with telescopes.

I wouldn't go, but I'd admire people who would.
