PRLog - Oct. 28, 2010 - DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, D.C. -- If NASA ever gets a clear directive for interplanetary exploration they could be shipping Black people to mars! A new Hundred Year Starship could be their version of the Mayflower. And like the first settlers of Australia and the United States Martian explorers might come from our prison systems and set sail with the knowledge they would never return to set foot on Earth again. The Huffington Post reports that “NASA and DARPA have joined forces to build something called a Hundred-Year Starship, according to the director of NASA’s Ames Research Center. Simon “Pete” Worden said NASA contributed $100,000 to the project and DARPA kicked in $1 million.

“The human space program is now really aimed at settling other worlds,” Worden said, according to a Singularity University blog that covered the event. “Twenty years ago you had to whisper that in dark bars and get fired.” (Worden added that he was fired by President George W. Bush.)
At this point in time no details are being releases. But the historically the prospect of a DARPA-NASA spaceship doesn’t bode well for the incarcerated—

Using prisoners would save money, many think because the prohibitive costs are mostly associated with bringing astronauts back .
“It would really be little different from the first white settlers of the North American continent, who left Europe with little expectation of return this time it could statistically be a black and Hispanic majority even now nasa is working on an advanced propulsion system that could get off the ground with minimal fuel and land safely the Long Now Foundation is also exploring electric propulsion systems.
Many believe it can be built by 2030.
NASA has worked with several psychologists and psychiatrists to study future astronauts' response to isolation something that a prisoner facing life in prison or lengthy sentences behind bars might be able to handle .
