Do you have what it takes to pack your bags and leave everyone on Earth behind?

A group of potential Red Planet residents recently opened up about their fears and hopes for moving to Mars on HuffPost Live -- just check out the highlights above and full segment below.

These candidates are among the 1,058 elite shortlisted from a pool of 200,000 applicants to take part in the Mars One initiative, which is an effort to send colonists on a one-way trip to the Red Planet.

"I've been having conversations obviously with my friends and family and loved ones and I don't think it's a very easy process," Mars One candidate Sue Ann Pien says in the video. Yet, she's still determined to become one of the first-ever human Martians.

Mars One will continue to sift through applicants, planning to establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2024.
