Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

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.
