In 2014 — I Am OUTTA HERE!

Richard Branson is taking space tourism to the next level, with the help of Google.

Virgle:

For thousands of years,
the human race has spread out across the Earth, scaling mountains and plying the oceans, planting crops and building highways, raising skyscrapers and atmospheric CO2 levels, and observing, with tremendous and unflagging enthusiasm, the Biblical injunction to be fruitful and multiply across our world’s every last nook, cranny and subdivision.

An invitation.
Earth has issues, and it’s time humanity got started on a Plan B. So, starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars.

I’m so there!

I think I should file this one under “travel”, right?

  3. How do you pronounce that, soft or hard “g” in Virgle.

    You go ahead. I’ll wait here.
