Want to relocate to Mars?

If you would, then count yourself among the thousands who long to be wanderlusts among the stars and leave our blessed Mother Earth to become Martians.

Mars One opened the application process to emmigrate to the Red Planet on April 22, and in the past two weeks, over 78,000 applied, according to NBC Science.

Mars One is a Netherlands-based group intent on landing four people on Mars by 2023, hence why they are screening candidates now.

There are no strict requirements to apply, no age cap (though applicants must be 18 or older). And you have to have the willingness or ability to speak English. The cost for US citizens is $38.

All you need to do is fill out this application form and submit a one minute video explaining your reasons for wanting to go to Mars. The application process closes on August 31.
