    Application To Go To Mars In 2023: What Are The Qualifications To Needed?

    Link: What are the qualifications to apply? - Mars One

    I don't qualify: Way too old:

    The age range for candidates will be limited. While the exact upper limits have not yet been determined, the lower age limit for applicants to apply for the selection program will be 18 years. By the time this person would land on Mars as an astronaut, he or she would be 28 years of age.

    It's fine, they've not stated an upper limit!

    Given the one-way nature of the journey I would have thought older folk would be better anyway - those who have no regrets about leaving Earth forever.

    If everything runs to time I will be 61 when the first astronauts arrive on Mars. I think that is probably too old.

    Agree with you about the one way nature of it though. You would have to be absolutely sure that you wanted to go. No changing your mind after take off...

    Can we send all of them in one giant spaceship?

    More than 100,000 want to go to Mars and not return, project says « CNN

    Out of the applicants, Mars One said it will select a multi-continental group of 40 astronauts this year. Four of them -- two men and two women -- are set to leave for Mars in September 2022, landing in April 2023.

    Another multi-continental group of four will be deployed two years later, according to the Mars One plan. None of them will return to Earth.

    The astronauts will undergo a required eight-year training in a secluded location. According to the project site, they will learn how to repair habitat structures, grow vegetables in confined spaces and address "both routine and serious medical issues such as dental upkeep, muscle tears and bone fractures."

    "What we want to do is tell the story to the world," Lansdorp said, "when humans go to Mars, when they settle on Mars and build a new Earth, a new planet. This is one of the most exciting things that ever happened and we want to share the story with the entire world."
