Provo woman could go to Mars Daily Herald

Kitty Kane has her travel plans made, although her departure is not yet confirmed. She’s hoping to take a trip to Mars, one-way. And it’s not for 10 more years.
The 24-year-old Provo hairstylist has applied to be one of the first people from Earth to colonize the red planet. Initially, 200,000 turned in applications. That number has been pared down to 1,058 and she is still in the running. Seven others of those continuing on are from Utah. Organizers are planning on an international crew. Of the more than 1,000 currently in the running, almost 300 are from the United States. One of the requirements is that they all must speak English, to facilitate communication.
“I think that is a beautiful goal,” Kane said. “It is not for national pride, but for all of humanity. It is one of my favorite things about the project.”

Personal mission to Mars Daily Herald

Imagine it’s 2100.
Human beings have destroyed Earth.
Do you and your family have a plan?
If you’re a member of the Mars Society you do.
Since 1998, the group – which is holding its annual conference this weekend in Chicago – has been advocating and planning for human exploration of the red planet.
“It may be where we’re going to have our great-grandchildren living some day,” said legendary science fiction writer Frederik Pohl of Palatine.

NIU scientist gets grant to study Mars Daily Herald

For the next three years, Wei Luo will have Mars in his sights. The assistant professor of geography at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb is leading an academic team that will study the networks of valleys stretching across the red planet. Luo, along with researchers at Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Virginia, won a $187,000 NASA grant to study satellite images of Mars to determine what forces formed its landscape – groundwater, surface water, wind, volcanoes, gravity or impacts from asteroids.
