If you are adaptable, resilient and creative then you too could have the opportunity to be a part of making history. Working well as part of a multi-cultural team within a confined environment will be paramount, as well as a willingness to master new skills such as dentistry, medicine and engineering - after all, if you want a job doing on Mars then it's a case of pulling up your sleeves and getting on with it yourself!
The good news is that ANYONE over the age of 18 can apply, irrespective of gender or nationality. You should have good eye sight and no chronic illnesses, but you don't need to be Superman, Wonder Woman or Einstein! Go along to the Mars One website and take a look at the application procedure, which is in two parts. Firstly, a public section where you leave a 30-70 second video of yourself answering questions and where people can see your profile and vote for you. Secondly, a private section read only by the Mars One assessment team. There is a fee for applying, which will vary from one to country to another in order to make sure that the cost is not prohibitive for those from poorer countries.
I note we have our first Brazilian entrant - congratulations to Social Science student Beatriz, aged 21 - let her be the first of many more!
