Aussie Mars One candidate experiences life on the Red Planet

COMEDIAN and Mars enthusiast Josh Richards hopes to live his life out on the Red Planet, with the Australian training hard in hopes of being selected for the Mars One project.

Brian Carlton caught up with Josh during Tasmania Talks this morning as he called in from inside a box in Sydney that resembles the habitat he could expect if he were to end up on Mars.

The five day simulated stay takes place in a small replica of the habitat in the film 'The Martian', being released on DVD this week.
