So who wants to fly to Mars... one way?

So who wants to fly to Mars... one way? Mission for volunteers receives over 1,000 applications from budding astronauts before it was even announced

Dutch firm plans reality TV show to choose its team
Plans to land four astronauts on the red planet in 2023, with four more arriving every two years

By Mark Prigg

PUBLISHED: 12:53 EST, 9 January 2013 | UPDATED: 08:56 EST, 10 January 2013


To boldly go where no man has gone before is quite a challenge.

But to boldly go knowing that you will never return to Earth may be asking a bit too much.

This has not deterred a Dutch-led research institute, however, which has launched a search for volunteers to take part in a one-way mission to Mars... where they would set up a human settlement.
Successful candidates will have to undergo eight years of training before blast-off in 2023.

The Mars One Institute pulled no punches yesterday: ‘They should realise that if this project is successful, they won’t be coming back.’

Former NASA researcher Norbert Kraft, Mars One’s medical director, said: ‘Gone are the days when bravery and the number of hours flying a supersonic jet were the top criteria for selection.

'Now, we are more concerned with how well each astronaut works and lives with the others – and for a lifetime of challenges ahead.’

Mars One aims to raise money to help fund the project through a long-running, global, reality TV show, which will select the first 24 candidates and follow their training.

Viewers would vote for who should be on the first team of four to leave Earth in ten years time. By 2033 the colony would reach 20 settlers.

Journey time to Mars, which is approximately 40million miles away depending on its position in orbit, would be around 200 days.

Settlers would encounter a barren, cratered landscape, an unbreathable atmosphere made up of 95 per cent carbon dioxide and temperatures ranging from 35C to minus 135C.

We wouldn't have America without this type of thinking. Best part is that we only know of the stories history recorded and kept. I'm fascinated by the human-level drama we would get to see. I wonder if they'd film themselves, have Big Brother imbedded cameras, or send a willing camera team that would have to be socially isolated to maintain the objectivity. Probably some combination of the former.

Coincidentally, if the project is not successful, they also won't be coming back.

Had we seen this a few months ago, I'm thinking that we would have chosen this option instead of the banners.

I'm checking with my wife and cat. If all three of us can go, I'm in. The views would be spectacular, and I'm getting tired of traffic noise.

If I were single, and had very few family ties, I think this would be awesome and terrifying to do.

Sadly, I am sure it is a death mission, there are just too many things that could go wrong that would have extremely limited options to try to rectify things. But trying it would be like nothing else imaginable.

Criminals and people who don't pay their debts? Do you really think we could fit the entire U.S. Senate into a spaceship?
