Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google's Larry Page and Sergey Brin have reportedly teamed together in a project of epic proportions named Project Virgle. Starting in 2014 they plan to lead hundreds of people on the adventure of a lifetime to establish a permanent colony on Mars. Volunteers for this pioneering adventure are being recruited starting today (April 1). Virgil is also recruiting volunteers to man positions in mission control and other support functions for those of a less adventurous nature. Check your calendars and then head on over to the web site to take the test to become a Virgle Pioneer! Just be prepared, you'll need to fill out the questionnaire and provide a 30-second video explaining why you want to live on Mars. Good luck!
