Mars Colonization Poll Finds 7 Percent Would Volunteer For One-Way Mission To Red Planet The Huffington Post

If you were offered a one-way trip to Mars, without the possibility of a return to Earth, would you take it?
If so, you’re in the minority. Only 7 percent of Americans say they would definitely take the opportunity to go on a one-way trip to a Mars colony, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll.
Another recent survey, this one conducted by Phillips & Company for Explore Mars and Boeing, found that Americans are somewhat more optimistic about the possibility of a human at least setting foot on Mars within their lifetime. That poll found that 67 percent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed with the statement, “I am confident humans will go to Mars in my lifetime.”
