Mars One to Build Community on Red Planet
Mars One, private space venture company, has decided to build the first space community on Mars in 2023. It seems that the planning of the company is going really well, as 1,000 astronauts have shown their interest in building the community.
Out of 1,000 applicants, the selected astronauts will undergo rigorous training of eight years. Only after the completion of the training and education, the selected astronauts will be sent on red planet, which will be their home.
Some information was provided on the official website of the Mars One, as per which, it was found that the Mars One astronauts have to go from the Earth by keeping in mind that they have to settle on Mars. The red planet will become their home and workplace for rest of their lives.
It shall however, be noted that the selection process is quite different, as the first 24 candidates will be selected through public vote. This will help them to raise funds for the project.
There is no compulsion for a person to have engineering degree to apply for the post of astronauts that will remain in Mars for rest of their lives. Needed thing is, "a deep sense of purpose, willingness to build and maintain healthy relationships, the capacity for self-reflection and ability to trust".
