Richard Branson is going to Mars. The British billionaire and adventurer, whose company, Virgin Galactic, is among the worlds most prominent space tourism firms, told several news outlets this week that he hopes to start a community of humans on the Red Planet. Obviously, you are going to want scientists initially, Branson told The New York Post Tuesday evening at a chic Conde Nast event in Manhattan honoring tourism visionaries. Youre going to want physicians, youre going to want comedians, youre going to want fun people, beautiful people, ugly people -- a good cross-section of what happens on Earth -- on Mars. People have got to be able to get on together, because its going to be quite confined.
