Finally! Life on Mars! Well, not just yet, but very soon. All thanks to the Mars One Project.
In case you haven't heard of Mars One, let me quickly fill you in. The Mars One Project accepted more than 200,000 applications to be among the elite group to colonize of the Red Planet. And, it's been stated that once on Mars, the humans selected won't be able to return to Earth ... ever. Oh yeah, and you have to star in a reality TV show, too. The mission is tentatively slated for 2025.
What kind of person would leave everything and everyone they know and love to endure a years-long journey only to die soon after arriving? The original pool of more than 200,000 people who volunteered for this mission, has been narrowed down to 100 and they all seem like bright and well-adjusted people!
The pool now consists of 50 men and 50 women who could be the first to live and die on Mars. After the next round of the selection process, the pool should be narrowed down to 40, but there's not a set timetable yet.
