This is my friend Steve. We went to University together and are still in touch.
Sadly not often since he is an insane world traveller.
Now, his is one of the 75 on the short list for the one way trip to colonize Mars.
I'm a bit freakin' weirded out right now.

I had to add this. I'm feeling nostalgic. It's not a certainty yet, but it's still very strange to think that your friend might be gone, forever, so strange. This is Steve and my friend Gail who is my photography partner and his best friend. I haven't talked to her yet. I wonder how she'll feel, though she's always just known that Steve is that guy who's always away somewhere.

That is amazing! One-way trip though... man.... I know I couldn't do it. Earth is just too beautiful :'(

Maybe it wont be one-way forever though. If the commercial space industry starts to do well, they may be able to ferry some people back to Earth in maybe 10-20 years, who knows?
