Mars one a scam?

:cry:
So, here are the facts as we understand them: Mars One has almost no money. Mars One has no contracts with private aerospace suppliers who are building technology for future deep-space missions. Mars One has no TV production partner. Mars One has no publicly known investment partnerships with major brands. Mars One has no plans for a training facility where its candidates would prepare themselves. Mars One’s candidates have been vetted by a single person, in a 10-minute Skype interview. https://medium.com/matter/mars-one-insider-quits-dangerously-flawed-project-2dfef95217d3

It fact the closer one looks the more it appears to be on the level with the "run your car on water" scammers.

from https://medium.com/matter/all-dressed-up-for-mars-and-nowhere-to-go-7e76df527ca0

...fleece vulnerable people out of their money, “By charging ‘suckers’ $40.00 to apply for the chance to be part of a one way mission to Mars when in fact Mars One is nothing more than a website,”


For the rights to advertise and screen this Survivor in space, Mars One estimates revenues of upwards of $8 billion, basing its estimates on the most recent Olympic Games cycle’s revenues. With this money, Mars One will then be able to purchase the spacefaring technologies that, in 10 years’ time, companies like SpaceX will have perfected, ready to send the Mars One astronauts on their journey. There is the small problem of not having the money until you have the show and not having the show until you have the technology and not having the technology until you have the money and possibly not having the technology in time, or ever, which is why, Mars One says on its website, the schedule is flexible.
