(CNN) -- More than 100,000 people are eager to make themselves at home on another planet. They've applied for a one-way trip to Mars, hoping to be chosen to spend the rest of their lives on uncharted territory, according to an organization planning the manned missions.
The Mars One project wants to colonize the red planet, beginning in 2022. There are financial and practical questions about this venture that haven't been clarified. Will there be enough money? Will people really be able to survive on Mars? But these haven't stopped some 30,000 Americans from signing up.

Considering the state of the earth right now I'm suprised its only 100,000, I thought they'd be a tsunami of people trying to get on board.

You are of course right, humans seem to have almost the same characteristics and effect on the earth as a deadly virus on a warm body.
