Do you want to go to Mars? You can. One company is looking for people who want to go.

The company wants to start a colony on Mars. The first mission will be in 2023. They will send more people every second year. There will be men and women. They can have children if they want to.

There is one problem. If you go to Mars, you cannot come back. You have to stay on Mars. People will know it. This is a very big project. The company will train the people. The training will be seven years long.

Interesting words: colony (place where people live), mission (special job or activity).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
