J VanDomelen Mars One management in the Netherlands has outlined the not-for-profit foundation’s goals and mission plan for 2013 through 2025. It is an interesting read and exciting proposition. Can Mars One and its global sponsors achieve the lofty goal of the first human settlement on Mars? They will, if all goes to plan: 2013 – Build a replica of the proposed Mars settlement in a cold, arid, desolate environment … Read More

J VanDomelen Not-for-profit organization Mars One in the Netherlands is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a one-way trip to Mars. Human space flight is expensive. It’s a fact that Americans and many others throughout the world have heard over and over. During trying economic times in the U.S., NASA’s budget often comes under scrutiny and, lately, human space exploration has taken an economic hit—yet, commercial … Read More

One in a Million

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen Mars One, a non-profit company based in the Netherlands, is offering the public a chance to travel to Mars one way—and, presumably, to take part in the first human settlement on the Red Planet. Would you make Mars your home? Competition is steep, to the surprise of more than a few military and aerospace (mil/aero) geeks. In fact, tens of thousands of Earthlings have already volunteered for the one-way … Read More

One-way Ticket to Mars

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen Would you buy a one-way ticket to Mars? Seriously, just one way. It’s an interesting proposition, if not a bit frightening. Many have pondered that it is perhaps more likely that many people can conceive of putting someone we know on a one-way flight to the Red Planet, rather than taking on the challenge ourselves. Heck, even Ralph Kramden of “The Honeymooners” fame promised to send his wife Alice “straight … Read More

J VanDomelen Aerospace engineers and enthusiasts, as well as science-fiction fans, are the latest Eagleworks experiment. The White-Juday warp field interferometer was designed and developed to record warped space and help scientists better understand the space-time bubble that would be required to break Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Albert Einstein theorized that a particle cannot travel faster than the … Read More

J VanDomelen This mil/aero geek is ecstatic that NASA has the resources, since the decommissioning of the shuttles, to start acting as a catalyst for the development of game-changing, space-related technologies. A couple really interesting stories have surfaced recently that have intrigued aerospace geeks, myself included. The most noteworthy is…wait for it…warp speed research! That’s right. You read that correctly. … Read More
