Maggie Wants To Go To Mars

Maggie Duckworth of Bridgeton, Missouri, is one of the 100 people still in the running for the MarsOne mission, a one-way trip to the red planet planned for 2024. When she joined me on the air today, I asked her why she wants to go, what her friends and family think of her leaving Earth permanently, and why she's qualified for the ride. We also talked about the logistics of the trip, including the physical and psychological needs of the first four Mars-bound astronauts, as well as whether the project will get the nearly $100 million some experts say it will need to, um, get off the ground.
