Default Space flight to Mars

NASA was interviewing professionals they were figuring on
sending to Mars. The touchy part was that only one guy
could go and it would be a one way trip, the guy not ever
returning to Earth.

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

"One million dollars," the engineer answered. "And I want
to donate it all to my alma mater--Rice University."

The next applicant was a doctor, and the interviewer asked
him the same question.

"Two millions dollars," the doctor said. "I want to give a
million to my family and leave the other million for the
advancement of medical research."

The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money
he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer'* ear, "Three
million dollars."

"Why so much more than the others?" the interviewer asked.

The lawyer replied, "You give me three million, I'll give
you one million, I'll keep a million, and we'll send the
engineer."
