It was bound to happen sooner or later- it was just a matter of someone with a vision (and a whole lotta money) to take this adventure on. Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have officially begun the mission of creating the first human colony on Mars- and they are asking for volunteers to submit a thirty second video for a chance to become a part of "one of the grandest adventures in human history": Project Virgil!

Your take: What do you think of the plan to colonize another planet? Think we're ready to take something like this on? Would you want to be one of the first?
