NASA's Mars Recruitment Posters Look Retro, But Eye Future on Red Planet

NASA has launched a playful series of Mars recruitment posters aimed at enticing people to explore the Red Planet.

The retro posters resemble those used by the U.S. government to recruit people into the military during World War I and are available to download from NASA's website.

"Mars needs YOU!" the website touts. "In the future, Mars will need all kinds of explorers, farmers, surveyors, teachers . . . but most of all YOU! Join us on the Journey to Mars as we explore with robots and send humans there one day."

The posters encourage people with a variety of interests to explore the planet to grow gardens, work the night shift on one of the planet's moons, and hike the solar system's largest canyon, Valles Marineris.

Totally useless to the general population of planet Earth.If everyone wants to get hyped up about something make it about our next President.Nothing in our solar system has anything to offer us,except keeping our own moon in place & not allowing terrorists to nuke it out of it's proper orbit.In other words fix everything on Earth first.If China wants to go to Mars,be our guest.From the looks of it we're so useless now we can't even keep Hillary out of the White House.

Here we go again, just like during both of the bankers' world wars.
The elites trying to trick the poor into being canon fodder, or in this case, guinea pigs.
