The recent media attention given to Mars One puzzles me. The project has insufficient funding and is unlikely to get it. It has dependencies on technologies that don’t seem to exist and in the unlikely event that it ever gets any humans to Mars, those individuals seem doomed to a short and miserable life there.
Much more reasoned is ESA’s explanation of humanity’s plans for a return to our Moon. And because it’s based on real science with real funding it’s much more exciting.
