Maggie Lieu – Aspiring Mars Dweller

Meet Maggie Lieu. Maggie Lieu is not a model. She is not an actress. She is (probably) not a musician, chef, comedian, or artist. Maggie Lieu is an astrophysicist that is on the shortlist to be one of the first people sent to colonize Mars. At 24 years old, she is also one of the youngest, most intelligent candidates available, and her goal is to have the first ever baby on mars, which means that all of the remaining male candidates are praying she gets picked.

    I’d make sure she left the hair dye on earth.

    Is this an attempt by her to get her 15 minutes of fame? Make no mistake she is smart and all, but still. I’m sure there will be a line of ‘suitors’ in line for her on Mars if she goes there.

    I heard of her from the Mars One effort so I am happy she is posted here. I love her accent. The hair is striking (the dye will be left behind). The jump suit doesn’t go with the shoe though. Mars Needs Sirens.

    I always said in 200 years everyone on earth in the universe would be part Vietnamese….lol

    HUGE bonus points for the accent. She can do no wrong.

    In her interview, she said she would miss her hair dye!

    If she is selected it will be a great honor for her. How long is the trip? To me it seem a shame to have her up in space for many years, unless there are alot of cameras.

    Redskins –

    If they go, they are never coming back. It is a one way trip.

    Well, if you have to get stranded on Mars with someone, a hot, smart and young Asian lady like Maggie would be just perfect.

    Personally, I hope she is not picked for the simple reason that we would lose her forever, which would be a tragic loss for all of Earth.

    The only ones who benefit from her being picked would be the men going with her — or more to the point, the man (or men) with whom she decides to have Mars’ first baby(/babies).

    she’s pretty, smart, so smart she’s hot, and unlike many others here i think the blonde hair fits her fine. and she is british. and she’s an astrophysics phd candidate. what’s not to like about her? that she is hotter and smarter than all of us combined? some men feel humbled by that. i don’t. i like my babes smart.

    If we have to send someone to Mars, it better be a smart, hot, asian babe.
    Colonization starting with good genes, no doubt. :)

    Being a one way trip, it’s both tragic and epic. Good for her, I hope she makes it!
