John Berman reports on Mars One - the project that hopes to send humans to live on Mars.
There are reality shows for just about everything dancing, singing, cooking, you name it…
The goal of a new show is to send humans to Mars.
But there's a catch…it's raising money for a one way trip!
"Mars One will establish human settlement on Mars in 2023."
Just imagine, you could be the next Christopher Columbus.
You could go down in history as an explorer, an innovator, a Mars-stro-naut.
Move over Space-x and Virgin Galactic this is Mars One: aimed at forming a colony of humans on the red planet.
"From now on, we won't just be visiting planets, we'll be staying."
They say more than 200-thousand brave souls have registered online to go.
"If they put me on a one way rocket and just shot it out and just told me to go out and explore as much as I could, I always would," says Lt. Adam McPherson, a Mars One applicant.
Bas Lansdorp, a Dutch engineer and entrepreneur, is looking for volunteers to construct living quarters and then live on Mars for the rest of their lives.
That's right. They haven't figured out the technology to fly people back to earth yet. This is a one way trip.
Not a problem, if you can live without pizza, Starbucks, and oh yeah, fresh air.
"I want to be a part of frontier technologies and pushing mankind forward," says Joshua Weidlinger, a Mars One applicant.
To fund the project, the organizers are considering sponsoring a reality show where you the viewer can help choose who to, well, send away forever.
