If you ever dreamed of visiting Mars as a kid, today is your lucky day. NASA is taking applications on its website to send your name to its next mission to the Red Planet.
Once you’ve applied, you’ll receive a virtual “boarding pass” with the details of the Martian trip, including the departure date and the launch and arrival sites. While SpaceX’s Starship prototype had crashed and exploded in a test flight in early February, your name can enjoy a risk-free journey to Mars. Bon voyage!
