How do you know he is gay.

SJ Automotive Design February 19, 2015 - 8:28 AM

He must have such a boring life to want to go die on the way to another planet.

Im not homophobic in any ways and i mean no offense but for the first mission i think they shouldnt send homosexual People to mars unless they are only goint to send full homosexual crew is more práctical because they dont get pregnant but if that is not the case sending heterosexual People alont with homosexual will result in one or two feeling lonely and there will be nothing they can do XD remember is for ever

Blakk Lining February 23, 2015 - 4:01 AM

His reasons why he wants to go to Mars are general, and he cannot add anything to the crew… I hope he wont make it to the next round.

markus ford March 13, 2015 - 12:09 PM

NoNamezLeft4Me June 1, 2015 - 1:52 AM

Did they only accept American Citizens/Residents for applicants? Still haven't seen a Russian astronaut yet.

You can have the mars landing live, the moon live had a 8 secs for the radio waves to go from the moon and back. Why would you think the mars landing would be live on TV.

I think Radford should prepare himself for bad news.  Three minutes and I already can't stand him.

Uncomfortable Penguin August 30, 2015 - 8:52 PM

Seriously? This guy is completely unqualified… Not sure why he thinks he's at all going to be able to get in…

Zacho Gilman September 14, 2017 - 7:53 PM

Idiot. You can die after 68 days. Assuming you will not die on that solar powered idiotic vessel.
