Mars One finds more than 1,000 volunteers for one-way trip to planet in 2023 Yahoo! News

The Mars One organisation has revealed details of its plans to land four astronauts on the Red Planet in 2023, with four additional ‘crew’ arriving every two years.
The organisation said that it had had more than 1,000 volunteers for the mission, who emailed in via the foundation’s website.
Selection of the astronauts will begin next year, the Dutch organisation says.
The trip to the planned ‘colony’ would be one-way – and the astronaut volunteers will live and die on Mars.
Mars One aims to finance a mission to Mars via donations from corporations, people – and by creating a reality show-style ‘media event’ around the training and selection of its astronauts.
