Poll: NASA seeks volunteers to test the viability of lunar colonization. Would you volunteer to try to live on the moon?
  • 37.6% - Heck yeah! It’s the new frontier! 726
  • 3.1% - No way, that sounds too dangerous. 59
  • 14.8% - No, I’d miss all my Earth friends and fast food. 287
  • 20.5% - No, I’m just not the “space colonist” type of person. 397
  • 24% - Maybe. How much of a subsidy do moon farmers get? 464

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I'd take it even if I knew it was a one way trip. No questions asked.

Nope, too much like camping. They still don't have a good way to go to the bathroom in zero-g or in low-g.

I'd grab all that neat stuff on the Moon, left by the last tenants, and sell it on mBay!
(eBay is on Earth, silly!)

Ah, the hell with it.

It will be a one-way trip. I'd have to weigh the thought of leaving my family/never being able to start my own. It's an interesting dilemma.

I'm glad I'll never have to choose. I have literally no viable skills to provide the project.

30 years ago, maybe. Too old for that now.

I would go, the trip would be amazing, but once you get there there would be nothing to do. There is nothing there but dirt and rocks, sort of like the middle east without the rockets and bombs going off around you. So, no thanks.

How much will Woot be charging for shipping to the moon?

Get me the hell off of this stinking planet already! One way trip sounds good to me!
See ya, earthlings!

There will always be adventurers who risk life and limb striving to be first. We have a whole book of firsts (Guinness Records)

If they had a signup sheet to go to Mars, even as a 1 way trip, there would be lots of people who would volunteer. Your name would be on par with Neil Armstrong. First person to set foot on Mars. (and first one to die there)

No brainer, I'd go
