This Incredible Plan For A Mission To Mars In 2023 Is No Hoax

•, Adam Taylor

Last week we stumbled across the incredible plans for Mars One.

In case you missed it, those ambitious plans called for a build a trip to Mars in 2023, with the money for the trip coming from a "global media spectacle" and the explorers chosen in a style that sure sounded a lot like reality TV.

Oh, and by the way, it's a one way trip.

The plan was soon making waves on Reddit, with over 2,000 upvotes. The hivemind, as Reddit's crowdsourced comments are sometimes referred to, began asking questions. Mars One founder, Dutch entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp, answered a few. "Our mission will be one of exploration. It will truly be the next giant leap for mankind," he said in one post.

Soon, however, the relationship with Reddit seemed to sour. Requests for a AMA (Ask Me Anything) were answered, but multiple questions were answered vaguely, if at all.
