The Hague – More than 1 000 candidates – from 200 000 hopefuls – have been chosen to train for a private Mars colonisation mission to be partly funded by a reality TV show following their training and subsequent steps.

Mars One said the selected 1 058 would-be emigrants to Mars, from 140 countries, were informed on December 30 that they were the lucky few to meet the criteria – including an “indomitable spirit”, “good judgement”, “a good sense of play”, disease- and drug-free, English-speaking – to be interplanetary pioneers. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
