I’m sure that everyone has noticed that the idea of a Mars colony is heating up. What they may not realize is exactly how much.


This whole recent bit started in April 2013 when the Dutch nonprofit foundation Mars One announced its intention of establishing a human settlement on Mars by 2024. In response, they received over 200,000 applications for what, at the moment, appears to be a one way trip.

Time to get your resumes in order, gang: nonprofit organization Mars One has opened up its application process for one-way tickets to the colony they hope to set up on Mars in 2023.
