      Watch out, Kardashians! A Dutch company says it will produce the biggest
      reality show on the planet, centered on a group of humans who colonize Mars.

      In the wake of SpaceX's first successful commercial mission to the
      International Space Station last month, Mars One has vowed a much
      grander feat, according to reports.

      The firm claims that it will put four people on the red planet every two
      years beginning in April 2023. By 2033, Mars One boasts there will be 20
      colonists on Mars.

      Mars One is founded by Bas Lansdorp, a researcher from the Netherlands
      with a master's in science from Delft University of Technology,
      according to PC Magazine.

      Landsorp says in a promotional video that "creating the biggest media
      event ever" will finance the out-of-this-world venture.

      According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the "media event" will be similar to a
      reality show, and "Big Brother" co-creator Paul Romer is on board.

      If Mars One's mission sounds too fantastic, consider that the company
      also has the backing of Nobel prize-winning physicist Gerard 't Hooft.

      "My first impression was that this is an extraordinary project by people
      with vision, imagination," Hooft says in the Mars One's video. "But my
      first reaction was I think like anyone who would be confronted by such
      an idea: this will never work."

      Still, he said he was convinced it could happen because the company has
      a plan for solving a tough challenge: how to get the colonists back to
      Earth. In Mars One's case, they won't. Colonists will stay on the red
      planet for the rest of their lives.

      Mars One claims that it has scored letters of interest for all the
      suppliers it will need to pull off its mission.

      PC Magazine's Andario Strange notes that while there's no assurance that
      the mission will become reality, at the very least the idea will inspire
      others to enter the brave new world of commercial space endeavors.
