I’ve always said I’d LOVE to experience space travel. Mandy, on the other hand, would rather keep her feet on the Earth. This time, though, we’re agreed.
If you’ve always dreamed of going into space, this could be an amazing opportunity.
A private company called Mars One is looking for people to train for the next eight years to go on their maiden voyage to Mars in September of 2022. For FREE!
A guy named Bas Landsdorp is the founder of Mars One. He’s looking for applicants right now, no experience necessary.
But there is one little catch: You’re not coming home.
You only get a one-way ticket. If you sign up, you’re agreeing to live out the rest of your life on Mars.
Landsdorp says, “The technology exists to get humans to Mars and keep them alive. The technology to bring humans from Mars back to Earth simply does not exist yet.”
Lansdorp said that more than 8,000 people have already applied for a chance to live (then die) on Mars after completing an eight-year training period that will include learning engineering, making mechanical repairs, and tending crops.
Once you’re up on Mars, you’ll be part of a human settlement and a community where you’ll live out the rest of your years. Assuming, of course, that you make it there in the first place.
So as much as I’d love to take a space trip, I’m gonna hang out with Mandy here on Earth until they figure out a way to get me home again.
