I was flattered to have been invited to UCLA to meet with this elite team on behalf of MUFON and to hear firsthand their plans for winning the right to build this first ever habitat on another planet. I was even more flattered that they thought to call MUFON and ask for our help even if it was only for funding purposes. I assured them that we were fully supportive of their efforts and that I would put out the call to our members who may have an interest in funding such a venture. The price tag for Phase Two which includes building a scale model of the habitat is a mere $50,000. If you are interested in donating, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I for one can’t wait for us to get to Mars. By my way of thinking the sooner we get there, the sooner we may get to meet anyone who may be living there. What was it that Ray Bradbury wrote so many decades ago in his classic book, The Martian Chronicles, as the young man from Earth who was first to arrive on Mars was looking into a pool of water, and saw the reflection of a Martian starring back at him?
Now that would be cool.
