Have you always wanted to live on Mars? Well NASA is giving you that chance…sort of.

NASA is taking applications and seeking four people to live for a year in Mars Dune Alpha, a 1,700 square foot Martian habitat at Johnson Space Center in Houston. The four paid volunteers will go through a number of simulations including spacewalks, limited communication to home, restricted food, resources, and even equipment failures.

A few requirements include a master’s degree in science, engineering, or math, or pilot experience. You also have to be between the ages of 30 and 55 in good physical health, no dietary issues and do not suffer from motion sickness.
