Back when it was first trumpeted a couple of years ago, my BS meter went off and the red flags a-fluttered in my head about Mars One, the private initiative to send a colony of humans on a one-way trip to Mars. Then I kinda forgot about it, like you do in life, right up to this morning when I got to read this really great piece of investigative narrative about Mars One, written by one Elmo Keep who cared more than I did.
Anyway, click through and read this great note on Mars One by Elmo Keep. An excellent longread that shines plenty of light on the cockroaches who’ve been living off this bunch of malarkey and nonsense for too long. And nice job getting an interview for the piece with a real hero, Commander Chris Hadfield.
