Make your mind up for Mars: TEDxDelft & Mars One
Getting your mind around the plans of Mars One is truly boggling it.., so to speak. It is bigger than anything achieved by humanity in terms of exploration.
The key reward for the Martian explorers is to follow in the footsteps of people like Roald Amundsen (Southpole, 1909), Edmund Hillary (Mount Everest, 1953) and Neil Armstrong (the Moon, 1969). But admittedly, the first human on Mars will dwarf these accomplishments altogether. And I think, by going there the way Mars One is proposing to go, it is even bolder. It is about going there, and staying there. Eat that Neil, Roald and Edmund!
