Utah(US):  Ken Sullivan, a father of four, who lives in Utah, applied to live on Mars without asking his wife. Now could be looking at a divorce as a result of his extraterrestrial ambition.

He is among 1,058 people who have been selected to go through to the next round of the Mars One project, which is set to colonise the Red Planet.

Ken Sullivan's wife and children are not happy about the news.

According to a report published in The Salt Lake Tribune,  Ken Sullivan's wife said: ‘The question is do we get divorced now or get divorced later. If I stand in the way of his dreams and passions, then we get divorced now, so I have to be supportive.'

If Ken Sullivan makes the final cut to live on Mars, he would also have to leave behind his four children, who range in age from just six months to 13-years-old along with his wife.
