Fatwa Issued on Trip to Mars

Quoting this article:

The mission is being planned by the Dutch nonprofit foundation Mars One. In April 2013, it announced its ambitions to establish a human settlement on the Red Planet by 2024.

But the GAIAE "General Authority of Islamic Affairs & Endowments" likens the journey to a suicide mission. On the authority's free 24-hour hotline, the issue was deliberated by the center's specialized muftis, or scholars, who issued the following statement: "It is not permissible to travel to Mars and never to return if there is no life on Mars. The chances of dying are higher than living."

Muslims going on suicide missions? Who on Earth has ever heard of something so ridiculous? Oh yeah - Everyone on Earth has! Silly me.
Top 5 Ironic Reasons Not to Go to Mars

1) The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) issued a statement today to the gay community arguing against travel to Mars. They warned that seven months alone in a space capsule might lead men into homosexual behavior.
2) The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) cautioned Jews that travel to Mars would be too expensive and unprofitable..
3) David Duke spoke out against White people going to Mars, arguing that White people are not natural explorers.
4) The Sy-Fy channel warned its viewers that too much interest in space travel to Mars could give them an unwanted reputation as nerds.
5) The Aborigines Advancement League discourages indigenous Australians from trips to Mars, as it could distract them from their work in other fields of vital scientific research.
