Manned Mars Landing in 2023??? For real.

A Dutch company plans to finance a permanent Mars colony by getting the whole world to pay to witness it, via some sort of private media Kickstarter scheme. The key to making it work? The colonists will have a one way trip and agree to live out the rest of their lives on Mars!

Very intriguing, and a little disturbing. They claim it will be a private (corporate) enterprise without government or “politics.” Yeah, right. This opens up a whole hornets nest of new questions about ethics and the responsibility of the corporation to keep these people alive.
