Have you heard about the Mars One program? Applications are already pouring in from people around the globe hoping to make it to Mars.
The goal is to start a human colony on Mars. Several rounds of selections will be made and eventually could be turned into a reality TV show where viewers can pick the final candidates.
Seems so strange to think about, but I suppose we are now in the future the movies from the 60s were talking about. There are so many unknowns; How will the human body react? How will the chosen ones be affected mentally? Will they even make it to the planet?
It's our version of the moon landing (whether you believe that or not). These are exciting and scary times. You would have to be willing to leave absolutely everything behind. I suppose you would need to be an incredibly adventurous person, and maybe slightly (but not too) insane!
If you had the chance, would you take a one-way trip to Mars?
