There’s a lot of applicants in the one way ticket going to Mars. And it will have 78,000 people who will be given a chance to visit the red planet.
The journey to the Red Planet Mars is one way, so they won’t be getting any return tickets.
Many of the applicants will be starred on a reality TV show prior to the selection process. The funds for this project will be given by the reality TV show.
The plan for the said show is expect to begin around 2015. The TV show will be able to get approx. 30-40 finalists. These finalists will be further split in groups to compete for the Mars mission. So, just one group that would win will get the opportunity to live on Mars.
“The Mars One colony project ‘plans to pay most of the bills by staging a global reality-TV event, with cameras documenting all phases of the mission from astronaut selection to the colonists’ first years on the Red Planet.”
