Mars mission: More than 78,000 apply for one-way ticket to red planet

Have you ever wanted a one-way ticket off planet Earth?

Then here's your chance, that is, if you consider Mars a better option!

More than 78,000 people have applied to go on a one-way trip to Mars.

The possibility of the trip is through " Mars One ," an organization aiming to put four people on the red planet by 2023.

Apparently, those that applied, are unfazed by the idea that they can never come back!

The applications came from more than 120 countries. Over 17,000 from the United States.

It's unclear whether enough money will be raised to actually fulfill the plan.

And ... will humans really be able to survive on the planet in 2023?

So if this thought excites you, it's not too late to apply! Applications will be accepted until August 31, 2013.

Fill out your application on the Mars One website .
