So you've met Sue Ann, Mido, Adriana, Shradha and Pietro -- five people from very different backgrounds with a singular goal: to help establish the first human settlement on Mars. Many believe that what Mars One wants to do is unachievable, but the candidates are already weighing the costs of leaving everything they know behind.

Pietro is searching for love, while Sue Ann wants to find herself. Shradha imagines being independent and Mido is finally pursuing his dream. Adriana is mobilizing for blastoff. They are bound together by an unquenchable desire to explore, to go where no human has gone before.


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 colonise 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.
