Fulfill man’s destiny, colonize Space. Don’t need to be a fighter pilot, any particular nationality or even work for NASA. Just don’t be stupid, over 18… pretty much a good representative for mankind and you could get to live on MARS!!!
Though currently scientists are not taking this endeavor seriously, Mars One – www.thenextgiantleap.com is steaming ahead with their plans.
Before you disbelieve, consider:
1) If it were 1910 and you were told we will go to the moon, you would most likely say “give me some of what y’er drinking bub.” And today we are living in space stations and contract private companies such as Space-X to regularly deliver supplies.
2) Just as the average human life expectancy has doubled in the past 30 years, the first human to live to 150 years old is already among us. The first Martian’s, or other human colonized, parents is already among us, here on Earth.
