Question by I’m a Turtle: Mars One is BS they are running it like a reality show?
“Mars One is a not-for-profit organization that will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars in 2023 through the integration of existing, readily available technologies from industry leaders world-wide. Unique in its approach, Mars One intends to fund this decade-long endeavor by involving the whole world as the audience of an interactive, televised broadcast of every aspect of this mission, from launch to landing to living on Mars.”

“In 2022, several months before departure, the Mars One selection committee will determine which groups in training are ready to depart to Mars. We expect at least six groups will be ready for the trip. Each of these groups will have obtained the qualifications and skills necessary for the trip to Mars, so in that respect it should not matter who goes first. However, the symbolic and historic significance of this issue is a different matter altogether. Who will be the first four people on Mars? Who will get to be the first human in history to set foot on the Red Planet and be known for it forever? Because our mission is humankind’s mission, we will make this a democratic decision. The people of Earth will have a vote which group of four will be the first Earth ambassadors on Mars.”

“Mars One will conduct a global search to find the best candidates for the first human mission to Mars in 2023. The astronaut selection process will be announced in the first half of 2013 through an announcement on our website, social media channels and the mailing list. Mars One is an international organization – we encourage anyone in the world who is 18 years or older to apply for the selection program.

The application process consists of four rounds.

Round 1: All candidates must submit their application to Mars One online. The online application will consist of general information about the applicant, a motivational letter, a resume and a one minute video in which the applicant answer some given questions and explains why he or she should be among the first humans who set foot on Mars. Approved application videos and letters of motivation will be available to be watched by everyone on the internet, unless an applicant decides against making his or her application video public. At the end of round one, a team of Mars One experts will decide which applicants will pass to round two.

Round 2: Candidates for round 2 will need to get a medical statement of good health from their physician. The applicant will be invited to meet with a Mars One selection committee in his or her region. After conducting an interview with the candidates, the selection committees determines who will pass to round three.

Round 3: This round is the national selection round, which could be broadcasted on TV and internet in countries around the world. In each country, 20-40 applicants will participate in challenges that demonstrate their suitability to become one of the first humans on Mars. The audience will select one winner per country and Mars One experts will select additional participants to continue to round four.

Round 4: Those who pass to round four will be expected to be able to communicate in English. The applicants will be responsible to reach this level of English. Round 4 will be an international event that will be broadcasted throughout the world. The Mars One selection committee will create international groups from the individual candidates. The groups will be expected to demonstrate their ability to live in harsh living conditions, and work together under difficult circumstances. The groups will receive their first short term training in a copy of the Mars outpost. From the first selection series, of which Round 1 starts in 2013, six groups of four will become full time employees of the Mars One astronaut corps, after which they will train for their mission. Whole teams and individuals might be selected out during training when they prove not to be suitable for the mission.”

This sounds like a “reality” show. What they mean is, if you “look funny”, are not good-looking – “sexy” – are not “nice enough”, or are not “perfect” (whatever that means) in the ignorant masses eyes, you are going to get “voted off”.

Well, these contestants are going to work hard. And it’s not survival skills, brain training or academics. It’s working your *** off to become a person you are not so you can gain the public’s approval.

WTF do they know?
