Yeah. The minute I read "reality show" and that they would depend upon funds generated through viewings I dismissed it as being viable.

They haven't touched all the ethical issues. When someone reaches the age of 65, or gets a terminal disease do they commit suicide? Are people going to have children out there?
Under the conditions there?

Yah, it doesn't take a large report to render it not feasible either, all I need to do is look at their bankaccount. Maybe Bill Gates can fund it or something. Like how the guy behind paypal funds Space X.

Then again I will always be hoping for any space exploration.

Personally..and this is nothing more than a gut feeling on this, but I don't think this is ever going to float, let alone fly!

I can understand that gut feeling. Just thinking about how many fails NASA had with the titan rockets and various missions. Far beyond the Mars One budget. It's almost a NASA/ESA tradition to fail the first go at almost anything. If Mars One "flies" or "floats", then it will most likely cost a hell'a lot more than 6 billion buckaroos in the end, plus a good number of lives.

what happens when the TV channel decides to cancel the show

Or are they starting their own channel?

Making large donations to help you be considered to be one of the 100 or whatever does seem pretty shady.

Supposedly a myth. See vid above.

Anyways, I'm pretty damn sure that 6 billion won't cut the chase, given that NASA's manned missions were way more expensive. The Mars One CEO says that it will be much cheaper because there's no return mission. However, what about the settlement? We're not talking boyscout tents here. If they actually do manage to go before 2030, then I will be surprised. And if they then survive up there and thrive, then I will be even more surprised. If they don't, well, then at least they tried man, at least they did that..
