Mars One, a group that plans to send humans on a one-way trip to Mars, has announced its final 100 candidates. They have been selected from 200,000 applicants and will go on to further testing later this year, which they expect to include team-building exercises and later, isolation.
According to Mars One, they plan to launch this move in 2024, and the intention is to start up a new colony in Mars. One of the women that’s applying for the trip, a doctor at Howard University Hospital, said she plans on leaving her husband of 22 years down on earth.
