(WIAT) – If you have ever wanted a one-way ticket off planet Earth this might be your chance.
That is if you consider Mars a better option!
More than 78,000 people have applied to go on a trip to the red planet.
The possibility of the trip is through “Mars One” the group hopes to put 4 people on Mars by 2023.
The only catch, it’s a one-way trip, meaning there is no return.
Even so, applications have already been received from more than 120 countries, with over 17,000 coming from the United States alone.
It’s unclear whether enough money will be raised to actually fulfill the plan, and if humans will be able to survive on the planet in 2023.
If you still think it sounds like a good idea, applications are being accepted until August 31st.
