"Mars One, the Dutch organization that hopes to one day establish a human colony on Mars, has narrowed its volunteer pool down from 200,000 to just 100—50 men and 50 women. For the lucky 24 who are ultimately selected to be the first human beings to touch Martian soil, there will be no return journey."
