Winning This Reality TV Competition Will Get You A One-Way Ticket To Mars — For REAL! See The First Trailer For The Mars 100 HERE!
On Survivor you win money. On The Biggest Loser you win an extreme weight loss. And money.
But The Mars 100 is a different kind of reality show.
50 male and 50 female contestants will compete to show they have the right stuff — the talent and the teamwork — to become astronauts with the Dutch company Mars One!
24 winners will be sent to Mars in groups of four, with hopes of starting the first human colonies there!
Science fiction? No. Reality TV!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the epic trailer for the competition that could change the fate of mankind — or possibly strand some reality show stars in space.
Either way, it's compelling TV!
And we bet Meghan Trainor does, too!
Some interns over at NASA have created a viral video spoofing on Meghan's song All About That Bass and it's called All About That Space.
The interns taped it at the Johnson Space Center in Houston after the successful launch of the Orion space capsule.
Some of the lyrics included lines like:
"I'm all about that space
'Bout that space, space travel
I'm bringing rockets back
Go ahead and tell the whole world that
We're doing exploration. Come on, board it stat
We're ready for liftoff
Every spacecraft needs propulsion from
the bottom to the top."
The YouTube video is currently at 299,300 views, but we expect that number to go up like a space rocket blasting off into space!
Props to these interns for making space exploration even more interesting which we thought was impossible…
…Because seriously who doesn't love space?!?! It's way better to watch than television at least, ha!

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Test Flight 'Anomaly' Causes Awful Crash — One Pilot Dead, One Seriously Injured!
This is just awful. What a huge blow to the private spaceflight industry.
Virgin Galactic was testing their SpaceShipTwo, a new type of plane designed to take passengers 62 miles into the sky! That's the edge of outer space!
Sadly, a "serious anomaly" caused the craft to fall from the sky, and crash into the Mojave Desert.
Virgin Galactic released a statement:
Space exploration is a dangerous game.
Sure, it'd be safer to never leave our homes and just keep our feet firmly on planet earth — but then progress would never happen.
Five brave Russian sex lizards have given their lives in the name of progress. They're the sex geckos that were lost in space.
Swap Out Gravity's George Clooney And Sandra Bullock for Matthew McConaughey And Anne Hathaway And You Have — Chris Nolan's Interstellar!
It may be Christopher Nolan's birthday, but he's giving us the real present.
That's because over the weekend, he dropped the THIRD trailer for Interstellar today!
Although, we wouldn't mind seeing a fourth trailer that explains Anne and Jessica's involvement in the story to a really in depth extant.
Well, dang. Now that we've thought of it, we actually kind of want it.
But until then, you'll just have to settle for the ones we already have!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Russians Lose Freaky Zero-G Lizard Sex Satellite! Could This Mean The End Of The Universe As We Know It??
Houston Moscow, we have a problem.
Right now, hundreds of miles above us, there's some freaky lizard sex going down. Zero gravity style.
Apparently a Russian "science" satellite, the Foton-M4 research satellite, which was launched on July 19th, is no longer responding to commands from mission control.
The Russian sex lizards have gone rogue!
The astronauts aboard the International Space Station must get bored and lonely sometimes.
When you're floating 250 miles above the Earth's surface, you're pretty far from everyone else… but that doesn't mean you're left out!
