Mars One, a nonprofit organization based in the Netherlands, intends to establish a human settlement on Mars in 2023. Anyone on planet Earth can apply if they meet the basic requirements. But obviously, the job isn’t for just anyone. On Jan. 8, Mars One released its application criteria.
The full site with all the spacey details — Human Settlement on Mars in 2023. I would sign up but on that day I got shit to do.
Furthermore, the human ability to conceive in reduced gravity is not known, neither is there enough research on whether a fetus can grow normally under these circumstances. Mars One will therefore strongly advise the settlement habitants not to attempt to have children.
No monkey business okay? Mars One has enough on their minds.

When I was approached for this job, I took a couple of minutes to think about what Star Wars meant to me, in order to determine if I had anything to bring to the table. I saw Star Wars in the theater; an odd decision for my mother, who tended to err on the side of caution when exposing her five-year-old to the mass media. I, of course, got a bunch of Star Wars toys, collected full sets of playing cards, and reenacted Hoth battle scenes in the snowy woods of Vermont. I was hooked, like everyone was. I realized that for the last 35 years of my life, Star Wars has been there in the background of my mind, in deep storage, waiting for something.

Eight billion years ago, rays of light from distant galaxies began their long journey to Earth. That ancient starlight has now found its way to a mountaintop in Chile, where the newly-constructed Dark Energy Camera, the most powerful sky-mapping machine ever created, has captured and recorded it for the first time.
My, my.. how I would love to say, “I work on the Dark Energy Camera.”
