Hi V ... Did you hear on the news this morning that a non-profit organisation called "Mars One" plans to establish a permanent settlement on Mars in 2023? I am already planning a daily photo blog called "Mars Snaps". If you want to join me apply here. By the way I've heard it's a one way trip. If you would rather not take up the offer perhaps visit Standley Chasm in Central Australia pictured above. No space helmet required. Chuckle J.
