Another Wannabee Martian

The Sacramento Bee has a story on yet another finalist in the Mars One project. This gal is from Folsom. Another explanation of why someone wants to go that I don't get. There is a little more info on the project in this story than the last.

Speaking of Mars, you space buffs may want to get a copy of James Oberg's Mission To Mars. Published in the 80s by a NASA guy, it tells the thinking of the time on how they'd send people to Mars and what they'd do when they get there. I read it back then and was fascinated. I've read that despite being an older book, the thinking behind Mars exploration hasn't changed much.

This project isn't getting more scrutiny over sending people on a one-way mission because nobody expects it to actually happen. Give NASA proper funding today and for the next 10 years and maybe then it's doable.

There are too many issues to overcome that need a lot more research. It's doable, but it will require the government to pave the way, not a private venture.
