The internet has been abuzz with the news that a private company is looking for people to sign up for a one way ticket….to Mars! Thousands upon thousands have responded to the call from Mars One for regular, every day folks to take the ultimate adventure. And after this winter, I’m sure many of those looking to go are from the prairie provinces.
The man behind this lofty, and possibly completely insane project is Bas Lansdorp. And, yes, it would appear that he is dead serious about this. He is determined to colonize Mars beginning in 2023.
Want to sign up? Looks pretty easy, really. Just go to applicants.mars-one.com.
