​and one of their sponsors is VBC Notarissen, a Dutch law firm. Another sponsor is Feinstein Associates, an International Air and Space law firm. The total cost? A cool $6 billion. 

Aside from that, though, the whole thing is pretty intriguing. More than 200,000 people applied for the one-way ticket to Mars (they’re really going and never coming back). The first mission will be unmanned; that one will take place in 2018, barring any funding difficulties.

From there, the first crew of four astronauts will depart in 2024. They’ll deploy four more astronauts every two years.

But training starts this year for members of the final 100, who will spend several months in a replica of the habitat they’re meant to inhabit on Mars.

My big question is when lawyers will join the mission. Right now, there aren’t any in the final 100 candidates—but in my experience, we have all of the qualities the Mars One team looks for in an astronaut:

  • Resiliency
  • Adaptability
  • Curiosity
  • Ability to trust
  • Creativity and resourcefulness

People from any country can apply, and even though the mission’s primary language is English, they’re willing to teach the language to people with limited working proficiency.

Thinking about joining their team? While they’re not accepting new applicants at the moment, they’ll let you know when they are. You can learn about their selection process… and stay tuned, because like any other interesting enterprise, there’s going to be a reality TV show to choose the final candidates.

Would you go if you could? I’m not sure that I’d volunteer for a one-way mission, even if I didn’t have earthly obligations—but I’d love to hear what you think. Leave a comment here or let me know on my Facebook page.
