In 2050, Irish scientist Joseph Roche is hoping to be one of 20 people sent to the Red Planet to live (and die!) in a space settlement. A new crew of four will be sent every two years thereafter but none will be coming back. The 'Mars One' Project is the brainchild of Dutch entrepreneur Bas Lansdrop, and Dutch scientist Arno Wielders, and when they announced the project, 202,500 people applied from all over the world. As of April 2014, the candidate pool has been reduced to 706, and we speak to Joseph Roche about the next phase of the selection process. We also meet Planetary Scientist Mary Bourke, who is working to better understand geomorphic processes in extreme environments (deserts on Earth and on Mars) and during extreme events (floods, mass wasting).
