    MarsOne has officially closed the submission period for the Astronaut Selection Program for its Martian Colony.

    The submitting period for the Astronaut Selection Program for the future Mars colony has ended with over 200,000 applications received.  The U.S. expressed the most interest with 24% of the applications followed by India with 10%.  Mars One is looking to establish a permanent human settlement on the red planet by 2023. Round one of a three-round elimination process will begin soon to find the most “committed, creative, resilient, and motivated of all the applicants” to be one step closer to a one-way ticket to Mars.
