More than 2 hundred thousand have signed up for a mission to mars, but there’s a catch, those selected will get a one way ticket.

The Mars One Foundation says it has found suppliers for an unmanned mission launching in 2018.

They will select just four Earthlings to colonize the red planet.

If all goes well, the first pioneers could land on mars in 2025 in the first privately funded planetary exploration mission.

Organizers say the hardest part is actually getting humans to mars.

The application period is now closed and the company plans to notify the people who made it to round two.
