I found this article this morning, ironically whilst drinking my coffee from a NASA cup.  The estimate for the debut of the new heavy-lifting rocket, by which NASA hopes to reach Mars, is being pushed back from 2017 to 2018, in order for the space agency to be "70% sure" of its success.

Time to get your resumes in order, gang: nonprofit organization Mars One has opened up its application process for one-way tickets to the colony they hope to set up on Mars in 2023.

Mind you, it's going to be a permanent gig for whoever they select, so you'd better like the color red and desert views.
