I must say. It's a very interesting watch. However I wonder how much of this is actual science rather then science fiction.

Yes "2033" is still a long way away buy does anyone actually think this will still happen in our lifetime?? That's really got me puzzled

It's like Back to the Future when 2015 finally came.

I don't know... I think it is quite feasible and the series' "info" within reason, mostly relying on if the budget for such a project will be made available.

Its reality may depend on that one future-Mars scientist (can't think of his name, the short one who looks a bit like Danny DeVito) - he has always been over the top regarding practicalities IMHO, so depends on the influence he's having on the production team.

Also now enjoying it a lot , a pity that it's such a short series.

Yes it is possible in a nutshell

But as you Said it always comes down to funding and a lot of it

Trip to Mars is a one way trip, you are never coming back to sit around the bar and discuss your adventure with your pals. Without sounding insensitive you really must be anti-social to partake on such an endeavour, now imagine housing 7 such people in confined cohabitation and hoping for the best and praying that they all be team players.

I know take the crew from the big bang theory they would be perfect.

Would kill Sheldon before they leave the earth's orbit

I don't think being social or until social got much to do with it. As they say it's all in the name of sience and sacrifices has to be made.

But yes saying goodbye to everyone is going to be very hard.

Yep, and those thoughts were well covered in episode 1.
How much harder than the fact that we will all leave this life for the unknown.....

But a one way trip is not an established fact, so let's see.

BTW, not everyone will have seen Sunday's episode yet so if anyone discusses that it's best to start the post with a spoiler warning.
