Default Man and woman, preferably married, wanted for expedition to Mars

I said no way to this and I would be the first to be pushed out the airlock for my bad habits!

Any takers, call now!

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - A nonprofit foundation wants to recruit a man and a woman - possibly a married couple - for a bare-bones, 501-day journey to Mars and back that would start in less than five years, project organizers said on Wednesday.

The spacecraft will be bare-bones, with about 600 cubic feet (17 cubic meters) of living space available for a two-person crew. Mission planners would like to fly a man and a woman, preferably a married couple who would be compatible during a long period of isolation.

The capsule would be outfitted with a life-support system similar to the one NASA uses on the space station, which recycles air, water, urine and perspiration.

Is there any Gun Contol on Mars?

I'm pretty sure I'd have fewer LIBTARD neighbors!
