I watched yesterday UFO Files and the War Of The Worlds episode (Thankfully on our sky + box so I could fast forward through the ads). It got me thinking about Mars again and whether a private mission would ever be possible. Be that for a probe or a manned mission :)
In my searches also found this link to Derren Brown's blog http://derrenbrown.co.uk/blog/2011/03/ufo-files-released/
Face On Mars for those interested in what has been described as a natural weather made image!
I would have loved the suggestion of a "mission to mars project" in science when I was at school.
