Google and Virgin plan to colonise Mars through 'Project Virgle'!

Google and YouTube have teamed up with Virgin to produce a great April Fool - Project Virgle!

"An invitation

Earth has issues, and it's time humanity got started on a Plan B. So, starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars."

Larry Page and Sergey Brin have recorded video to support this:

Richard Branson has also recorded a video:

www.google.com/virgle has all the information and gives the opportunity to sign up to the project and talks in depth about their plans for an "Open Source planet"!

There is also a Project Virgle YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/virgle

Very entertaining - great April fools day idea!
