200,000 Apply to Mars One to Live Out Their Lives on the Red Planet
Mars One wants to send permanent settlers to Mars by 2023. To simplify an already costly and complex undertaking—said settlers won’t get a return ticket. But returning home is apparently a minor detail for many. From late April through the end of August, the organization took in 202,586 applications from aspiring astronauts across the globe. The applicant pool is diverse, spanning 140 countries. Almost a quarter of the applicants hail from the US, 10% from India, and 6% from China. The initial pool will be whittled down over three rounds to the final teams—six to ten groups of four—who will begin training for their mission in 2015. Although the first round of applications is officially closed, there will be more. Mars One is planning to run a continuous colonization program, should early efforts pay dividends.
