More than 78,000 people apply to live in Mars. LOLZ

More than 78,000 people have applied for a chance to go on a one-way trip to create a permanent community on the planet Mars, officials said. The Dutch company Mars One launched its online application process on April 22, in an effort to find four people to send to Mars to create a permanent colony there in 2023, Space.com reported.

"With 78,000 applications in two weeks, this is turning out to be the most desired job in history," Mars One CEO and co-founder Bas Lansdorp said in a statement. "These numbers put us right on track for our goal of half a million applicants."
So far, applications have come in from more than 120 countries, with many coming from the United States, which submitted 17,324 applications, CNN reported.

"Mars One is a mission representing all humanity, and its true spirit will be justified only if people from the entire world are represented. I'm proud that this is exactly what we see happening," Lansdorp said.

None of the four people who will be selected for the journey will ever return home, Lansdorp said at a press conference.

The one-way trip also cuts on costs for Mars One, which has yet to overcome the obstacle of funding, CNN said. The colony's budget is "about $6 billion," Lansdorp said. "The $6 billion is for the first crew that goes there." Mar One hopes to send another crew in 2025.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser
    compatibility issues? A handful of my blog audience have complained about
    my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
    yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

    This design is incredible! You definitely know
    how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
