'Martians wanted': NASA seeking applicants to live in year-long Mars simulator

This might be the ultimate opportunity for introverts.

NASA is looking for a four-person crew to participate in a one-year program simulating living on Mars. 

This mission will be the second of three Mars living simulations Crew Health and Performance Exploration Analog, or CHAPEA.

The first four-person crew was locked into the Mars Dune Alpha habitat in June 2023, and is more than halfway through their mission.

This current mission is set to kick off in Spring 2025.
