Every year, countless people from some of the northern and central states of the country leave snow, ice and freezing temperatures behind by heading south. These "snowbirds", as they are often called, trade in their          gloves          and hats for             sunscreen             and bathing suits. Heading south to escape winter's chill is common, but some             travelers             do just the opposite. They pack the extra layers and the snow boots and head to the village of Jukkasjarvi in          Sweden         . Once they arrive, they check into their hotel, but they don't take off their heavy coats and           scarves          . Why? Because at Sweden's Ice Hotel, everything from the beds to tables is made out of blocks of       ice      .

Why would anyone want to travel to one of the           coldest           places in the world during the winter          season         ? That was a question that a tourist company asked more than 20 years ago. They wanted more tourists so they tried something new. They built a 60 square foot         igloo         out of ice blocks and held an art exhibit inside. People came, but not that many.

One day, a group came to see the           exhibit          , but arrived too late. Instead of leaving, they spread out their sleeping bags and spent the night in the        snow       . Suddenly, a brand new idea was born! The tourist company built an entire         hotel         out of ice blocks taken from the nearby Torne River. They advertised this          unique          hotel all over the world and soon, people came to explore. Now,           curious           guests check in and enjoy the cold. Then, when the warmth of spring returns, the hotel melts into the ground and disappears. It will be           rebuilt           when winter returns.

Recently an invitation was sent out to the world. The world certainly responded! The Mars One Foundation           invited           anyone over the age of 18 to apply for a future one-way ticket to Mars. Winners would be sent to the red          planet          in 2023. It would be their job to establish the first human settlement. Hundreds of thousands of people from all corners of the         earth         sent in their                applications               . Of those, only a small group included the required fees and video.

Those that make it through the first round of              selections             will be put through rigorous and challenging          mental          and physical tests.           Experts           expect this to whittle the number down to several dozen. Those select few will then participate in an intensive seven-year             astronaut             training program. Finally, four people will be chosen to make the long        trip        into space.

Are you sad you may not be a part of this group? Don't be! According to Mars One Foundation, you can follow their              adventures              on television. The              foundation              hopes to raise billions of dollars for the project by turning the process into a television           reality           show. You may not be able to go to        Mars       . However, you may be able to        vote        on who does!
