The MarsOne Project announced that they have narrowed the field from 200,000 down to 1,058 candidates to compete for the one-way spot to Mars. They said they separated out the cream of the crop—those who they felt were physically and mentally adept to become the first human colonists on Mars. And surprisingly none of the applicants who submitted video in the nude were chosen. Don’t they realize it’s cold on Mars, they might need their clothes. More than 107 countries are represented with 586 men and 472 women. Look ladies odds are in your favor. But the easy part is over. Now candidates will be put to the test, being subjected to rigorous situations that will show who’s fittest to go. Those who advance will compete on a MarsOne-sponsored reality show.
