Life on Mars?

Posted on: Wed 23 Aug 2017

Would you give up your whole life on Earth to live in a dome on Mars?

Unbelievably, there are thousands of people who want to give it a shot.

A hundred of those people are on the short list for Mars One – a project aiming to land the first humans on Mars and establish a colony by 2025.

Josh Richards is one of those people – he’s like the whole A-team rolled up into one life form, a Physicist, Explosives Engineer, Soldier and Comedian.

“The right kind of crazy is the right kind of person to do it,” says Richards.

He joins Jennie Lenman on Breakfast to talk about what he’s getting himself into.
