Mars One project inspires clothing line, is still ill-fated

Mars One project inspires clothing line, is still ill-fated

Mars One inspired a lot of people when it first entered the public eye. Thousands of applicants volunteered for a one-way trip to Mars. Almost immediately, though, critics began pointing out big problems with the proposed plan, and soon after the applicants themselves began raising issues. The dream is still alive despite this, and the company is still pushing on, still insisting that its plan is possible. Spawning from the project is an upcoming line of clothing that will be revealed at the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show.

Mars One finalist reveals concerns about “flawed” project

Mars One finalist reveals concerns about “flawed” project

In 2013, the world started dreaming big about travel to Mars when Mars One revealed its own big plan: to send people on a one-way trip to the red planet, something that horrified some and inspired others. The non-profit organization had a sensationalist way of going about things: it wanted video applications, and there were even rumbles about turning the project into a reality TV show. More than 200,000 applications were received, according to different sources that cropped up last year, but fast-forward into 2015 and the doubts have continued to grow.

Mars One mission could fail terribly, says MIT students

Mars One mission could fail terribly, says MIT students

The world's interest in sending people to Mars has never been higher, and for good reason: it is cited as both a necessity for the human race, and the technology to pull it off is advancing quickly. Multiple entities are looking into sending people to the Red Planet, perhaps the most notable being Mars One, which is looking to send a group of astronauts on a one-way trip. Unfortunately, as exciting as the prospects are, a group of MIT students says the mission is doomed, and that with the current plan the astronauts would starve.

Mars One gets over 200,000 one-way astronaut applications

Over 200,000 would-be space explorers applied for the first round of Mars One's Astronaut Selection Program, though there's still several years - and a few more screenings - before the mission goes ahead. Not-for-profit Mars One opened up for applications earlier this year, offering the chance of a one-way trip from Earth to the red planet that's scheduled to take place in 2023.

Mars One astronaut applications near six-digit mark

Mars One astronaut applications near six-digit mark

About a month ago, a rather ambitious plan was unveiled - to colonize Mars with astronauts who will never return to Earth. With such a harsh reality - never seeing loved ones or, well, earth again - it would reasonable to expect such a project to have trouble finding volunteers. Such was not the case, however, with the organization behind it, Mars One, seeing a flood of applications almost immediately. It has been a few weeks now, but the latest numbers show no slowing in those who hope to call Mars their second home.

Mars One project wants to put a reality show on Mars. No, seriously.

Mars One project wants to put a reality show on Mars. No, seriously.

If you think there are too many reality shows on this planet, just wait. If a pioneering Dutch company has its way, you'll be watching people live on an entirely different planet in a little over a decade from now. The project is called Mars One, and it aims to send people to the Red Planet in the year 2023, for the enjoyment of us Earthlings. This is a legitimate project, but of course we're skeptical about whether or not it will actually happen.

Marshall Headphones Stockwell, a tiny speaker with big sound

Marshall Headphones Stockwell, a tiny speaker with big sound

The folks at Marshall Headphones reveal a device they call the "biggest little speaker" in its class. This device looks like an amplifier - much like the last several independent speakers the brand has made - but it's a whole lot smaller than every speaker they've created thus far. This "Stockwell" speaker is about the size of half a shoebox, coming in at just 2.65 pounds (1.2kg), with two 2.25 woofers and two-channel Class D amplifiers.

NASA’s new drone will use jets to fly in Mars’ atmosphere

NASA’s new drone will use jets to fly in Mars’ atmosphere

NASA continues to build tools that will one day be used to better explore planets, like Mars, in preparation for one day building structures. One such new project is a quadcopter-style drone that will be used to look for resources. Dubbed Extreme Access Flyers and designed by NASA's Swamp Works laboratory, they need to be able to fly in environments that have little to no air. Instead of relying on rotor blades, one model uses gas jets in order to get around.

Marshall debuts London, an Android phone build for rock & roll

Marshall debuts London, an Android phone build for rock & roll

Marshall, the company most known for their guitar amps, has just announced its first Android smartphone, and it features a focus on music that will make other devices claiming the same more than a bit envious. The phone is called London, and while it's styled to resemble a guitar amp, it actually comes from Marshall's headphones division. With two headphone jacks on the top, dual front-facing speakers, and even a dedicated M button for accessing music, the London is a phone that marches to its own tune.
