Volunteers set sights on Mars mission

Mars One project ambitiously expects to establish a permanent human settlement on the red planet by 2023.

    Living on another planet has long been the realm of science fiction - but not anymore.

    At the Mars One project, researchers are working on putting human beings on the surface of Mars within just ten years. 

    And they don't just want to put people on Mars - they want to establish a permanent human settlement there.
