The one-way trip to Mars known as Mars One seems to be unfolding as it fails miserably under close scrutiny. This is a great shame, and potentially a missed opportunity. We should embrace this ground-breaking idea and support it with as much cash as we can spare, and indeed spur the team on to an even greater Mars One expedition! Why? Here we have a chance to create and launch our very own B-ark. We can give a glorious send off to all those middle-men, Politicians, PR Consultants, Lawyers, Solicitors, used-car salesmen and of course the telephone sanitisers, and at the same time push forward the frontiers of Space Science. It’s clearly a win-win situation and we shouldn’t let it slip through our fingers.
