Ever wanted to be the first to go to Mars? May be easier than you think

If you do, you may just have what it takes to go!

Not sure how we missed this one, but if you’re 18 years of age or older and “have a deep sense of purpose,” you could be one of the first 8 humans to live on Mars. Nope, this isn’t a joke and though I don’t expect it to look anything like (the original) Total Recall; it does sound like a chance to go down in history.

Even more interesting than the destination, the requirements don’t seem to favor the fighter pilots or doctors (pfft, who needs them anyway); instead the requirements take a more abstract spin focusing more on mental stability and the willingness to “build and maintain healthy relationships. It makes sense when you consider that you’ll be spending the next 8 years training just for this mission.

Before you pack your bags you should be aware of one thing; this looks like a one-way trip. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

For more info hit the source link and if you, dear reader, decide to go for it, let us know.
