400 volunteers for a one-way mission to Mars?

Whose idea was it to disturb all these good people for nothing? I could have prepared a list of 400 candidates in a jiffy and for free.

Why waste a good planet on the kind of people you have in mind? I think of more appropriate places in our solar system. As for Mars, I'd volunteer for the one-way trip. Pioneer spirit and all that bollocks. Only it isn't all bollocks, as the quoted words of those volunteers shows.

Well, not all of it is bollocks, but I would still prefer a milder climate for my vacation. Like South Pole or summat.

I think it was sci fi writer Charlie Stross who said anyone wanting to settle Mars should start with the Gobi desert in winter while wearing a fireman's respirator.
