Citizen Mars, Episode Four: The detachment of attachment

Citizen Mars S1:E4 | Open Doors

Sue Ann, Mido, Adriana, Shradha and Pietro have made their decision — they want to help establish the first human colony on Mars. They know it’s a mission from which they won’t return, but that doesn’t make it any easier for friends and family to accept.

For some, what’s less difficult is other people. Sue Ann admits she doesn’t want kids. Adriana says she’s a robot. Will the future will be conquered by those with the fewest attachments to human beings?

The Citizen Mars series takes an in-depth look at five of the 100 finalists for the Mars One mission. In each episode we chart the progress of everyday people determined to be the first to colonise the red planet.

Through interviews and extensive vérité that spans Europe, Africa, Asia and the US, discover the obsession with the future, adventure and space that’s propelling them to leave everything — and everyone — behind.
