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

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.

‘They should realise that if this project is successful, they won’t be coming back.’

The same result would happen if the project isn't successful.

Yeah, I thought that was an odd way of putting it as well.

Not necessarily, it would depend on where it became unsuccessful. If it happens before they are launched no problem, if something happens in LEO then depending on their individual training and mission command they could be coming home. Until they are completely out of Earths orbit they should be able to come home via a rescue mission as they will have to take large quantities of supplies with them.

If I got sent to live on Mars, I think the thing I would miss the most would be oxygen.

Chickens cross the road for multiple reasons. Sometimes it's to flee a predator. Other times it's because they see a food source or a potential nesting spot. Without more information, it's difficult to ascertain the true catalyst for their actions.

I never gave a reason why they would go, just saying that if the mission isn't successful then they actually have a fairly high chance of making it home.
