Mars Trip Prohibited by Islam
(United Arab Emirates)
Promoting or being involved in a one-way trip to the Red Planet is prohibited in Islam, a fatwa committee under the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment in the UAE has ruled.Interesting since the same Islamic authorities don't ever voice a squeak when one of their followers straps on explosives for detonation on a bus full of innocent people.
“Such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam,” the committee said. “There is a possibility that an individual who travels to planet Mars may not be able to remain alive there, and is more vulnerable to death.”
