Australian comedian shortlisted for a one-way mission to Mars.

Comedian, physicist, and general troublemaker Josh Richards knows his days are numbered: short-listed from over 200,000 applicants for the first human mission to Mars in 2026, and launching without any hope of ever returning, it's increasingly likely he'll die on the red planet.

So if YOU were leaving the planet in 10 years time, what would you do before you left?

Group/Artist Bio: Physicist, Explosives Engineer, Soldier, Stand-Up Comedian and Astronaut Candidate one thing Josh Richards can never be accused of is being boring.

In the last decade he's picked up booby traps for the Australian Army, slogged through mud with the British Commandos, used napalm in a music video for U2, been a science adviser to the richest contemporary artist in the world, and performed with some of the world's top comedians while wearing a giant koala suit to confused audiences from Los Angeles to Edinburgh.

Josh found his true calling in late 2012 when he discovered the Mars One project. Selected from over 200,000 initial applicants, Josh is now one of 100 worldwide astronaut candidates short-listed to leave Earth forever and become the first to colonize Mars in 2026.
