MARS-ONE, a small private Dutch organization aimed to put the first humans on Mars and leave them there to establish a permanent human colony. People all over the world could subscribe as a candidate for a one way ticket. More than 200,000 people expressed interest and 4,000 applicants paid a registration fee and submitted public videos in which they made their case for going to Mars. Three question had to be addressed: why is it important that people go to Mars, why are you the right person and what is your sense of humor.
