The Mars One project wants to send you on a trip to the Red Planet by 2023. Yes, really. There's just one caveat: it's a one-way trip. Think you're up for it?
We first told you about Mars One back in June. The project is built around the relatively high-concept premise of establishing a human settlement on Mars and filming the entire endeavor — just to see what happens. If it sounds like a reality television program, that's because it pretty much is. Theoretical physicist and Nobel laureate Gerard 't Hooft (who fully endorses the project) says it'll put Big Brother to shame. (Oh, and speaking of Big Brother, the show's co-founder and executive producer, Paul Römer, is already a Mars One backer.)
