PETA is at it again. The animal rights group, which recently gave a glowing endorsement to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is taking their fight from film to space. Pull up a chair and sit back—because PETA’s going to Mars.
PETA wants to stomp out all unfair treatment of animals. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the United States, Europe, Antarctica or even space. Mars has been on the government’s radar for years, and scientists have plans to make it a “laboratory of democracy” for human colonies.
So, when we finally set up shop on the Red Planet, PETA wants a piece of the animal-friendly pie. They’ve sent a letter to SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corp) CEO Elon Musk to request a vegan colony.
