Maggie Lieu, 24, has applied to be part of the first human colony on the red planet through the £3.9 billion Mars One Project.

It aims to create a permanent settlement for our race on Mars and will start by sending 40 people in 2024 after 10 years of extensive training.

She has been shortlisted to make the 140 million one-way journey to Mars and she believes she could be the first woman to give birth on Mars.

Miss Lieu said: “It would be incredible to be the Adam and Eve of another planet.

“Because it is a colonisation programme, it’s inevitable that eventually someone will procreate and it would be incredible to be the first mother on Mars.”
