Update: 80,000 People Apply for One-Way Mars Missionzoom in

Just recently, we provided details on how to apply for a mission to Mars. Now, the Guardian reports that nearly 80,000 people have already paid their $5 – $75 application fee and submitted their names to join Mars One on the one-way mission to Mars.¬†Mars One, the Dutch company behind the proposed mission, says it has received applications from more than 120 countries. It also says that the role of Mars explorer/guinea pig is “the most desired job in history.” More than 17,000 of the applicants are from the US which is the most of any country so far.¬†Mars One hopes to have 500,000 applicants by August of this year and, by 2015, plans to select 28-40 people out of that list to begin a seven-year training program.

Best of all, Mars One is posting people’s video applications to its site and you can vote for your favorite.
