70,000 People Sign Up For One-Way Trip To Mars!

This week I’m at the Humans 2 Mars conference in Washington,DC. Yesterday I was fortunate to meet one of the founders of Mars One. This is a Dutch company with an audacious plan to set up a fully-functioning human colony on Mars starting in 2023. I heard the amazing news that they opened up applications for colonists one week ago. (Please bear in mind that this is a one- way trip to Mars!) I got the amazing news that 70,000 people from all over the world had already signed up to be Mars pioneers. My readers we are on the cusp of a social and technological revolution!

About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
