Have you ever wanted to travel to Mars? What if it meant living there for the rest of your life? That’s the opportunity Mars One is offering to volunteers who will help establish human settlement on the Red Planet. The downside is that the technology for a return trip hasn’t been developed yet. That doesn’t seem to be deterring the masses of applicants– Mars One says that more than 200,000 people have applied. In order to narrow down the applicants and help fund the project, the company is considering sponsoring a reality show where viewers will help select the Mars pioneers.

THE TECHNOLOGY TO GO TO MARS IN SUCH A BIG SCALE HAVE NOT BEEN CREATED YET IT WILL TAKE YEARS TO DEVELOP SUCH TECHNOLOGY AND IT MIGHT NEVER REACH MARS, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO BE INSIDE  A SMALL CELL OR WITH ASTRONAUT SUIT TO GO OUT, ASSUMING IT WON'T RIP AND DAMAGE,

THERE WILL NEVER BE OUTDOORS LIFE IN MARS NOT IN AMILLION YEARS BECAUSE MARS IS TOO FAR FROM THE SUN TO CREATE THE FORCES  TO MAKE AN AITMOSPHERE I WILL ADVISE ALL OF THOSE THAT WANT TO GO TO MARS TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE ATMOSPHERE

I'd select all of the rightwing Republicans that applied, and offer a free ticket to those GOPers who did not. After all, it's the RED planet.
