In episode two of our original Citizen Mars series, the five candidates we're following dive deeper into one of the big questions of the Mars One project: What drives a person to sign up for a one-way trip into space? Adriana, Mido, Sue Ann, Shradha and Pietro show why they are willing candidates for a dangerous mission, and the downsides of potentially leaving everything behind. As it turns out, a desire to explore is just the start.

The Citizen Mars series takes an in-depth look at five of the 100 finalists for the Mars One mission. In each episode we chart the progress of everyday people determined to be the first to colonize the red planet.

Through interviews and extensive vérité that spans Europe, Africa, Asia and the US, discover the obsession with the future, adventure and space that's propelling them to leave everything -- and everyone -- behind.
