Mars One Mission: First Sikh Shortlisted For One-Way Trip To Red Planet

Recommended Posts

Taranjeet Singh Bhatia is the first Sikh name put forward to become the first humans to step foot on the Red Planet.



More than 200,000 people applied for the controversial privately-funded mission that organisers have estimated will cost six billion dollars and is set to be filmed for a reality television series.



The Mars 100 Round Three candidates include 50 men and 50 women with 39 from the Americas, 31 from Europe, 16 from Asia, 7 from Africa, and 7 from Oceania.



Taranjeet Singh Bhatia, 29, a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Central Florida, is among the three Indian hopefuls, who will move on to the next round of an ambitious private mission that aims to send four people on a one-way trip to Mars in 2024.



Taranjeet said, "All my life I always wanted to be involved in space missions. As a child, I spent hundreds of nights, gazing at the sky and always wanted aliens to abduct and take me into space."



The other two Indian candidates are Ritika Singh, 29, who lives in Dubai, and Shradha Prasad, 19, from Kerala.

This is pretty disturbing. Why not live on here just merge with the One instead of sending yourself to death?

Nothing disturbing about this. He shouldn't need to mention his relationship with Guru Sahib just to convince other Sikhs that he is fully devoted. His relationship with Guru Sahib could be stronger than most users here and you are judging him before you even know him. Even if he is fascinated with Vaheguru’s creation, doesn’t mean he can’t hold any desire and love for Vaheguru. This is good for Sikhs and I too wish him the best of luck. :)

If he is fascinated with Vaheguru's creation, he could just do naam simran and get closer to Vaheguru but hey it he wants to go on a suicide mission why not?! LOLZ

    • Is there a footnote or addendum for Chatropokhiyan that states, "Not All Women"? Or is it something that's considered to be assumed and not worth mentioning?  You can play with words and claim others who highlight these issues are slandering all women, but nothing in what's been stated targets every single woman alive. You can lie and force through your agenda, but then that just reveals your spiritual posturing to be as hollow and meaningless as your arguments. Do you know what statistical data is? It's drawing on information and data to present an inference based on various characteristics that are a broad occurrence, with the theory of probability, that doesn't take into account outlying extremes.  It is as simple as that. And if this needs to be stated anytime a sensitive discussion occurs on this site, then you folk are in serious trouble up ahead.  
    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh  No veerji. Yes of course woman are capable of terrible things to like what indira gandhi but there are other woman like Mata Sahib Kaur,Bibi Nanaki,Mai Bhago and countless other shaheed Singhanis whose greatness cannot be described.But when Guru Sahib is saying this,it is to those people who have negative stereotypes against woman and claim that all woman are like that and that only a woman can do such a kartoot.This is wrong as this would be an insult to other good woman.Its like imagine saying all Man are cunning.Then this would insult all good man.Another example is that many people abort children just because the child is female.Thats why Guru Sahib says why condemn a woman whose Greatness CAN be so powerful.But this does not apply to all woman.No it is not wrong to call Indira Gandhi bad or Rajiv Gandhi bad or a person like Wazir Khan.But it is bad to give an example of evil people and judge a whole gender or religion based on that.🙏 Bhul Chuk Maf 🙏
    • It's a problem that we need to eliminate. If we don't, it's going to be a huge problem when the time comes for unifying and moving forward.
    • I find this "from women, men are born " quote from gurbani very troublesome in my mind. Bul chuk maf  if I cause any offence. Please help me understand.  If we call Indira Gandhi bad, is it wrong because she is a woman even though she stormed our holiest place and killed so many people? She gave birth to Rajiv Gandhi. Was he a king? And how many innocent Sikhs did he kill?  If women are capable of great things, than can they be capable of terrible things too? Or does having a womb exempt them from this?
    • Sant Isher Singh Ji Maharaj verify this in one of their recorded kathas (available online), as do Sant Waryam Singh Ji Ratwara Sahib Wale in 2 of their kathas (also available online, the mention Suleman by name). I can't remember what the links are to their katha, as it's been many years since I heard them. They are available on gurmatveechar.com. All true.
