A Journey to Mars… The story of our lifetime…


A team led by millionaire and former space tourist Dennis Tito plans to send a “tested couple” to Mars and back in a privately funded mission. [1]

The Inspiration Mars Foundation plans to start its one-and-a-half-year mission in January 2018. The mission planners wanted the crew to consist of an older couple whose relationship would be able to withstand the stress of living in a confined environment for two years.

What more romantic, than travelling your last – (possibly) fatal – journey along with your loved one. I really envy the ones selected.

But wait a minute…

Aren’e we all doing the same “journey” every day?

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

    Good point.

    As far as the couple, it would be a long stinky ride in more ways than one if something happened to one of them in close quarters though. We have the luxury of abstract layers of distance here.

    1. Indeed such a journey could bring despair in many ways. Alone there in a small spaceship, travelling for years. But again life can too bring despair, if you look at it in a weird angle… 🙂
