PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have gone another step higher on the crazy ladder.
MSNBC reports:

“Animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has sent a letter to space entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of rocket company SpaceX, urging him to make any SpaceX missions to Mars vegan.

“We can get off on the right foot on our new biosphere by ensuring that SpaceX crafts traveling to Mars are stocked only with vegan food and that Mars’ colonists commit to enjoying an animal-free diet once they’ve arrived,” the group wrote in the Aug. 8 letter.


“If Elon Musk’s vision of a colony on Mars comes true, the last thing those people will need is the disease and destruction that results from eating animals,” PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement. “Whether you’re settling into your new Martian home or staying here on Earth, going vegan is the best way to ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy the world around you for as long as possible.””

Okay, honestly? Most people are more concerned with actually getting humans on the planet Mars and being able to study the planet – but of course PETA has to be one step ahead of everyone and thinking about the potential of the cows and chickens on Mars. Who would even have that as the top issue when going to Mars? Clearly, people who dedicate their lives to PETA would find the time to send a letter asking to please be vegan on Mars.

Ridiculous. I am sure that most of the astronauts and scientists are not worrying about the menu.
