    don't do that, it would ruin the only semi-decent planet in this solar system.

    Send them to Venus instead. It'll be the hottest show on TV!

    Interesting article ... if it's true.
    I think a lunar colony would be a whole lot cheaper but maybe they're worried about people being able to get away :P
    The hole idea of being the among the first of a small group living on another planet where (as the article states) you will never come back and living the rest of your life where everything you do in your house is broadcast over the Internet back on Earth for a price ... doesn't sound all that appealing to me. I'm sure there are some people excited enough about space travel, though to actually consider something like that. Kinda reminds me of commercials I've seen for Terra Nova.

    Also, how's the government supposed to work here? Cops are all employees of "the Corporation" that funds the project? What happens if some psychopath gets a bording pass? Come to think of it, on the other hand, if no one wants to go WILLINGLY, maybe they could colonize it the same way they did with Australia :P

    If you did, then seriously I don't think it was the best reply of the joke. It actuallly ruined it a bit.

    I can see a video game coming of this.

    Firearms in space. Kinda reminds me of Firefly/Serenity.
    They've gotta be like air marshals, though, with special bullets. You don't want them shooting holes in those expensive space colony walls :P

    Weren't the British Colonies formed originally as a business venture too?
    Of course there's no known natural resources to get out of it in this case so they have to get entertainment value out of it.

    And each week a contestant will be voted out of the base habitat and booted out the airlock.

    The competition will be fierce.
