A mission to Mars.

Sunday, June 17, 2018

NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent on a mission to Mars. Only one could go and they wouldn’t return to Earth.

The first applicant, an engineer, was asked how much he wanted to be paid for going.

“$1 million,” he answered, “because I want to donate it to MIT.”

The next applicant, a doctor, was asked the same question. He asked for $2 million.

“I want to give $1 million to my family and leave the other $1 million for the advancement of medical research,” he explained.

The last applicant was a lawyer and when he was asked how much money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer’s ear, “$3 million.”

“Why so much more than the others?” the interviewer asked.

The lawyer replied, “if you give me $3 million, I’ll give you $1 million, I’ll keep $1 million, and we’ll send the engineer to Mars.”
