Good morning. 80,000 have allegedly applied for a one-way mission to Mars

Here’s a job where your retirement plan doesn’t matter:

Dutch company plans to choose crew for private mission with reality TV show, in order to meet $6bn cost

According to the company’s chief medical officer, Norbert Kraft, Mars One is eschewing the usual astronaut candidates – scientists and pilots – in favour of YouTube fanatics and internet people, “because what we are looking for is not restricted to a particular background.”

No, best guess it’s just people who can’t figure out what Goodbye means, in Dutch or English.
