I’m not so sure that they would take this position, that they would want this “job”, for lack of a better term. I think a lot of people want to see their friends and families. They want it 6 or 7 o'clock to punch out and turn off work. They want to, on a Saturday be able to go away for the weekend or a Friday night. And that’s okay, I have no complaints about it, because I wouldn’t choose another life. This is it for me and for us.
#BBMARS – BIG BROTHER is Set for an Earth Shattering New Series in OUTER SPACE in 2024 .
Mars One, a private company in the Netherlands has reached out to commercial space companies to help settle Mars. To be funded and become the biggest media event in history - A ‘Big Brother’ type show broadcast from Mars .
TV executives want to send 24 housemates to Mars in the most outrageous reality series ever.
It will cost a staggering £4 Billion but plans are already under way to get the intergalactic show online. So far 704 people have signed up even though they face eight years of training. A Dutch foundation led by businessman Bas Lansdorp is behind the Mars One project and has already struck a deal with an offshoot of original Big Brother firm Endemol.
Bas said: “We want to send the first four settlers to Mars in 2024. Additional teams will follow.”
Life on Mars would be tough. It is deeply cold at -55C (-67F), racked by dust storms, has gorges miles wide and a volcano the size of Poland.
It would take six months to travel there and those who win the contest to become inter-planetary settlers will not be able to return to Earth for at least two years after landing. Some have even said they are prepared never to return to Earth.
Wind energy entrepreneur Lansdorp, 37, said the £4 Billion needed to finance the mission will come from broadcasting rights. He is in negotiations with American company SpaceX to use their seven-man Dragon V2 space vehicle.
Bas also said: “There will be a living unit for each along with inflatable greenhouses to grow vegetables. Water will be extracted from ice particles from the soil and some of it will be broken down to provide oxygen.
“Solar cells will generate electricity. The audience will be more excited than they have been since the Moon landing.”
