Surprised How about a ONE-WAY trip to Mars?

Maybe it's just me, but I'm at a complete loss here. This article describes a Dutch company's upcoming one-way trips to Mars. Seriously. They're going to recruit "colonists" who want to go to Mars...and stay there.

The thing that confuses me is why the trip is one-way. They're planning on sending up new groups of colonists every two years, so I don't understand why when those people arrive others can't just leave.

Oh, they're also planning on turning this whole thing into a reality TV show. So we'll get to watch as people lose their minds and wish they'd never taken the trip up there.

Anyone thinking about signing up? I can guarantee you I won't be on the list.
