Want to go to Mars in 2023? Here’s where you apply
Mars One, the not-for-profit attempting to send humans to Mars in 2023, has listed the qualifications you need to make the one-way trip to the Red Planet. The barriers to entry are either surprisingly low or strikingly high, depending on your perspective.
First off, there are very few technical or physical limitations on entry to the program. They don’t specify that you need any particular scientific background, or a university degree at all. In fact, you don’t even need to be especially proficient at English (they’ll train you), despite the fact that it’s the language of the mission.
The biggest specific barrier to the program is the fact that all applicants must be at least 18 (they will be 28 when the mission leaves). The Mars One requirements also mention that there will be an upper age limit for the program as well, although have not decided on what that will be specifically.
So, easy right? Well, not so much. (Mars One/Bryan Versteeg/mars-one.com)
