Pinoys on Short List for Immigration to Mars

After conquering foreign shores as workers, several Filipinos are now seeking to establish a presence even on Mars, reports GMA News. Filipino applicants are among those shortlisted for Mars One, a not-for-profit foundation that will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. The thought of being the first persons to break the soil of the Red Planet lured over 200,000 applicants to the first round of selection phases. As of December 30, 2013, only 1,058 people, including several Filipinos, remained.
