SpaceX, Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, is looking to fill its latest rocket with anti-vaccine zealots on a one-way mission to Mercury.
“We know how much anti-vaccers hate Mercury, and we know how much rational people dislike anti-vaccers, so this was a no-brainer” said SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. “The rocket will be filled with as many as 225 people and then flown straight into Mercury.”
So far, there have been over 100 people sign up.
“This is a huge opportunity” said anti-vaccer Nelson Freidman. “The chance to go into space and the opportunity to be a martyr for a great cause. This trip alone will prove that Mercury can kill.”
NASA is reportedly against the idea, as they fear for the life of Mercury.
“We don’t know what will happen to the planet” explained scientist Dr. Venkat Kapoor. “We don’t want it to be damaged or have a change in it’s orbit.”
The planned trip is set to launch in June 2017.
