Do you want to escape it all, get away from that job, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, or ex. How about a trip to Mars? The one major catch, you won’t be able to return to earth. A Dutch company is looking for applicants who want to travel to Mars and set up the first human colony as part of a reality show. The deadline is August 31st to apply and they already have 10,000 applicants. You can find out more here. The first trip is scheduled for 2022.
Me personally, I would be glued to the TV watching the show. I mean come on, we all would want to see if they make it to the planet, land safely, and can even survive the conditions of the planet and each other. Isn’t that why our parents watched the moon landing for some of the same reasons? It will be interesting to see if the project ever gets off the ground (pun intended).
