(NECN) – Tuesday, NASA will introduce its newest group of potential astronauts. The four women and four men were selected to train at Johnson Space Center after an extensive search of more than 6,000 applicants. That's the second largest number of applications ever received by the agency. The future astronauts will focus on training for future space exploration, which includes investigating an asteroid.

But they're not the only ones with their eyes to the sky.

Our Suffolk in the City student reporter, Yasmine Julmisse, joins us from Boston with more.

Relocating is usually somewhat overwhelming; however, over 100,000 people have already signed up to relocate to Mars. Not another state, not another city but another planet.

The project Mars One is planning on colonizing the planet by 2022. They want a whole bunch of people to move there. Would you be able to do it?

Watch the attached video to hear people’s answers, from 'Mars is awesome' to 'California is hot enough for me!'
