Out of over 200,000 applications sent in to the Mars One project, 1,058 lucky would-be space travelers made it to the second-round on their quest to become the first in a group of four colonists to go Mars in 2024.
Bas Lansdorp told CBC Radio in Canada on Monday that his intention to send a mission to Mars is seeking willing participants. He can, and will, he says, get them there but the job lasts a lifetime because he can't bring them back.
Mars One is the byproduct of decades of nothing being achieved in terms of real human progress in space. The idea is a one-way trip to live on Mars, and there are 8000 applicants ready to go in 2022.
Mars One wants to create human settlements on the Red Planet. A Digital Journalist photographs a D-Day memorial event in Toronto. An Indian village is overrun by giant venomous spiders. These are the top stories from across the world.
