Astronauts Wanted

by Heloise Wilson

"Loving someone and not being loved in return: This is how wars are started, no?"

Three volunteers, Sol, Sorcha and Tallulah are on their way to Mars and doomed to die.

Inspired by the Mars One Mission which will send the first humans to settle a colony on the red planet, Astronauts Wanted, is a deeply poetic non-linear narrative.

What happens when you get your period in space? How do you have sex in zero gravity? Is it really possible to use the soil on Mars and your own poop to grow a garden of potatoes?
