Apply to be Part of History & Help Get Man to Mars

The Mars Society conducts missions executed by volunteers to gain experience and knowledge towards a manned mission to Mars.  Arctic 365 Mission applications are now being accepted to be part of a 6 person crew to perform field exploration on an island 900 miles from the North Pole.  Ideally, the selected crew will have expertise in the areas of geology, geochemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, paleontology and engineering.ImageFor 12 months the crew will operate under many of the same conditions a crew will see during a human mission to Mars.  Mission details and the application process are in a Mars Society announcement.   Applications are due November 30, 2013.  

If 12 months is too much of a commitment, additional volunteer opportunities are updated regularly.
