Thought for the month

“You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.”
Marcus Aurelius Antonius, Emperor and Stoic philosopher (121-180).

1058 aim for 2025

Mars One has a plan to form a human settlement on Mars with the first people landing on the planet in 2025. Over 200000 people applied for what is ultimately aimed to be 24 places and the first selection phase is now complete with 1058 candidates still under consideration. 297 are American, 75 Canadian and 62 Indians. Mars One intends that the project will be funded by investors and the rights from the documentary-cum-reality TV broadcasting of the tests, training and final selection.
