There are no restrictions on nationality.“If you want to get humans to Mars and have the skills and temperament to help make this mission a success, please step forward. This is your chance to make history!” according to the Mars Society’s call for volunteers. “The approach of our investigations is to have real science goals in Mars analog environments and to conduct field work under simulated mission constraints.
