Earthlings on Mars

Yesterday, a high school and a college student were my visitors. I do not particularly remember what lead me or them to have an “open-answers-questions” with me i.e. this was like: ask me anything and I will answer it as honestly as I could.

One of their questions was: How many planets and stars are there? Who owns them? Are aliens real?

Hehehe, oh…my… Both the number of planets and stars are infinite. No one and nobody own any planet or star as of yet, except planet Earth which is owned by humans, or specifically the top 10 percent of humans.

One of the non profit groups that could own a colony on Mars by 2023 - or even the whole planet Mars is the Dutch company Mars One. On the news:

The Mars One organisation has revealed details of its plans to land four astronauts on the Red Planet in 2023, with four additional 'crew' arriving every two years. The organisation said that it had had more than 1,000 volunteers for the mission, who emailed in via the foundation's website.

The trip to the planned 'colony' would be one-way - and the astronaut volunteers will live and die on Mars. In the first half of 2013 Mars One will launch the Astronaut Selection Program, a search to find the best candidates for the 'next giant leap of mankind'. The search will be global, open to every person from every nation. As a Foundation, Mars One will be the owner of the human outpost on Mars, the simulation bases on Earth, and the employer of the astronauts, both in training here on Earth, and those on Mars.

Humans has nothing to be worried about a group already planning to occupy and own planet Mars. If the number of planets and stars are divided equally among living human beings today, each person could, probably own a thousand planets and a thousand stars; heck …even a whole galaxy!! Remember the diamond planet that’s several times bigger than earth? If divided equally among humans, each one could probably have a diamond the size of Arizona, hahaha. 

Aliens? Oh…my…I haven’t seen one yet. But mathematically, they are supposed to be out there. …so yes.
