One-way trips to Mars?
ASU professor Paul Davies is co-author of a paper in Journal of Cosmology, suggesting that the initial exploration of Mars be one-way trips for people, just like many colonists left their homes forever in historical times. The idea is getting a lot of news media attention. The article is one of many from a new book, The Human Mission to Mars: Colonizing the Red Planet.
