Watch: Mars One Way – Vita Brevis Film

There were 200,000 people who applied to participate in a project called Mars One. It’s a private enterprise to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars and film a reality show along the way. The idea is to go in crews of four starting in 2024. The thing is, right now the technology can only get them there. “Mars One Way” documents the thoughts and theories of Five hopeful Mars One astronauts as they contemplate the reality of leaving planet Earth forever, for a new home on Mars.

Any Name Is A Legend: God Is An Astronaut

The Irish band God Is An Astronaut

Torsten Kinsella – Guitar

Jamie Dean – Piano/Synths

Location: Glen of the Downs, Ireland

God is an Astronaut are a 5 piece who hail from Glen of the Downs, Ireland. They took their name from a line in Clive Barker’s film ‘Nightbreed’, the band was formed by twin brothers Niels and Torsten Kinsella in 2002. After recording their first demos, and with numerous labels offering deals (yet looking for the band to add vocals to their music) they instead decided to set up their own label ‘Revive Records’ to release their debut album ‘The End of the Beginning’ in 2002. This crucially allowed the band to remain in complete creative control. Speaking on their debut, which was originally intended as the bands farewell to the music industry, the band say “we just wanted to finish on a release we were really proud of, we had no expectations at all.” Over the next couple of years after the album’s low key release, the band started to pick up interest mainly through word of mouth on-line with rave reviews on blogs. Both video singles from the album “The End of the Beginning” and “From Dust to the Beyond” received airplay across Europe on MTV. This was when the world was first exposed to the bands strong usage of visuals to enhance their music.
