Would you go to Mars?

Would you go to Mars?

by Suzanne Flinkenflögel on Friday, 6th January 2017 in People

There are many people that would not trade life on Earth for anything, and certainly not for a seven-month journey in a very small spacecraft to another planet where there aren't any luxuries and one can only walk outside wearing a space suit. At the same time, the idea of going to Mars and discover a planet where no human has been before ignites the imagination of many. Team members Suzanne Flinkenflögel and Willemijn Verhoeve (intern) went out on the streets of Amsterdam to ask for opinions about human missions to Mars. One of the questions we asked, was “If you’d have the opportunity to go to Mars, would you go?”. The answers we received were highly diverse and were the start of some great conversations. Take a look at some of the responses to this question below.
