Virgin and Google having a little fun

Google and Virgin today announced product Virgle, a manned mission to Mars complete with an application, website, and video call to action.

Now, of course they are having a bit of fun, but what a great way to have a laugh. They've put together a full website that allows all of us who hope and dream to pretend, for just a bit, that perhaps we will get to Mars in our lifetime, and that perhaps, space exploration can become the purview of citizen scientists, instead of a few government employees.

Reading through their material certainly puts a smile on my face. Right now I am trying to think of what to put in my application video...
