NASA mission will take astronauts to Mars -- and leave them there forever!

(By Niall Firth, (UK Mail Online) - NASA is planning an audacious mission to send a manned spacecraft on a one-way trip to permanently settle on other planets.

The ambitious idea is known as the Hundred Years Starship and would send astronauts to colonize planets like Mars, knowing they could never come home.

NASA Ames Director Pete Worden revealed that one of NASA’s main research centers, Ames Research Center, has received one million funding to start work on the project.

The research team has also received an additional $100,000 from NASA.
