People on Mars: Mars One in 2023

I don't care what anyone says, I'm excited about Mars One!  Yes, there is danger, which I'm cognizant of, but hoping all goes well, this mission is WAY ahead of all previously discussed manned missions to Mars (I've frequently heard 2030s) and I really would like to see a man on Mars. Additionally, as there are several stages involved (see timeline), this means that we'll have not one, but two more rovers on Mars in 2018 (the other being ExoMars' rover) [the only two rover missions currently on the books].  Will they get the funding? That remains to be seen, I guess.  A long wait, but nice to know we're making progress.

They have their own videos on their site, but this is a nice video summary too.
