    Well if they install Windows it sure will be a one way mission, thats if they can get off the ground first..

    DoD and some other related departments actually run a lot of linux stuff. Posted some links on this before but I'm to lazy to look for them now.

    A lot about this project is daft. But there's no particular reason why a one way trip to Mars is a suicide mission. I suggest people do a Google video search for "Mars Underground".

    I don't have a link to hand, but basically: an unmanned craft goes first, equipped with rovers and robotic equipment to build the first domes and to start splitting water (already on Mars) into hydrogen rocket fuel and oxygen for humans to breathe.

    Once all this is set up, manned (and womanned) flights will follow. There will be a fuelled ship ready to take people back to earth, and some could remain on Mars as colonists. Future flights can bring more equipment - food, domes in which crops can be grown, other domes, robots, more water-splitting plants, whatever is needed. Some flights will carry people, and people will be able to come and go - and some can stay as colonists.

    This won't start in 2023. And yes, it might sound like science fiction. But sending humans to the moon was once science fiction, as were the international space station, hubble telescope, rovers on Mars...

    Project Orion anybody? The 60's experimental nuclear space-craft to go to Mars and beyond. And they don't suggest any way of actually getting there. What will they use:
    Chemical propulsion?
    Ion propulsion?
    Or Nuclear Propulsion.

    For me Nuclear would be interesting. Then again they would have to use chemical propulsion as a way of escaping the earths atmosphere.

    The whole thing is ridiculous. I can't figure out if these people are insane or just criminal.
