Adventure - One Way Ticket to Mars Draws 165,000 Applications
« on: September 10, 2013, 04:43:39 PM »
The Netherlands-based nonprofit Mars One is planning to fly teams of four astronauts to the Red Planet.
The first landing is slated to occur in 2023, to establish a human settlement on our planetary neighbour.
There are no return tickets.

Would you want to go?

Today, the organization opened up its astronaut selection process, which it hopes will raise some of the funding for the project.
Those over age 18 interested in spending the rest of their lives in space can apply by submitting applications and short videos to the Mars One site.
There is no maximum age for applicants, nor a required technical background or even nationality or language — astronaut candidates will have a few years to learn English if they don't speak it already.
Successful applicants will have intelligence, resourcefulness, courage, determination and skill, as well as psychological stability, said Mars One ambassador Gerard 't Hooft, a Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist.
