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!
