Are you ready to move to Mars?
The exciting prospect is still a long ways off, but you can start the process if you'll be on hand for Destination Star Trek Germany, which will be held February 21-23 at the Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany. Mars One -- which seeks to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars -- will have a stand space and backdrop at DSTG where fans can record application videos.
Fans can then take those videos home and actually apply to join a Mars One mission when the next round opens. Fans will also have the opportunity at DSTG to speak with Mars One principals about the concept and reality of the project and to offer feedback.
According to Mars One, crews of four will depart every two years, starting in 2024, with the first unmanned mission to be launched in 2018.
