Sup Travellers?! Maggie Lieu, Coventry, may embark on an epic 140 million-mile, £4Billion, one-way trip to the Red Planet and become one of the the first persons on earth to colonize mars, according to the Mirror UK.

Mars One is a project planning to colonize Mars by sending four trained humans every two years, beginning in 2027. This involves training in all aspects of human life, like agriculture, engineering and medicine, and living 5 meters underground to avoid the hazardous radiation. She also faces temperatures of as low as -62 degrees Celsius, and dangers of suffocation, dehydration and starvation.

She is, however, well qualified as she is currently studying astrophysics at Birmingham University.

Currently in the 600 strong shortlist, Maggie is hot favorite to make the final cut of only 40 people to start training next year. Out of 200,000 original applicants, she must be feeling pretty chuffed with herself right now.

"To start a colony we would have to have children on Mars, eventually it would happen," She said, going on to admit. "It would be challenging, nobody has done any research on giving birth in a low-gravity environment."

This is definitely the start of something really amazing. Can you imagine how awesome it would be if humans colonized other planets in the solar system the same way we did with territories on earth? Right now we can only imagine. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
