Move over Survivor and Big Brother! Forget about the Kardashians! A Dutch company, Mars-One, is planning to establish a human colony on the Red Planet in 2023, and you′ll get to watch the whole thing on Reality TV! The enterprise has the backing of the 1999 Noble Prize winning Dutch physicist Gerard ′t Hooft and Reality TV mogul, Paul Romer, who created the Big Brother series. They describe the plan for a colony on Mars as a ″media event″ and ″media spectacle.″ If all goes well, the first four astronauts will blast off and head for Mars late in 2022, arriving the following year after a 7-month journey. This will take place after a series of supply and equipment craft land on Mars before the humans depart from Earth. Every two years after the initial colonists land on Mars, another group of four will join them, bringing the total number to 20 by 2033.
If you want to get away from it all, then Mars-One may be recruiting you to colonize the planet Mars. Image Credit: Mars-One.com.
