Mars One backed by Reality TV Big Brother Creator

Daily Mail UK - The Dutch company Mars One is backed by Big Brother co-creator Paul Romer, as well as Nobel Prize-winning physicist Gerard 't Hooft. With Romer involved, it's no surprise that the company wants to publicize its astronaut-selection and training process as a "media event."

Mars One claims that a new crew of four will join every two years as the explorers build their settlement, and that by 2033 there will be 20 people living on Mars.

The company has been in talks with independent space suppliers such as Space X, which recently launched the first privately owned rocket to the Space Station.
The company aims to start training astronauts next year - and will turn the selection and training programme into a 'media event' similar to a reality show.
