Across the Universe, the series by Beth Revis, tells about an earth project to colonize another planet.
Much like the story of Revis, my sister sent me the link to this article what discusses exactly that: the colonization of Mars starting with four lucky individuals in 2023.
Interesting enough, the first colonizers of Mars will be randomly chosen through a lottery pretty much like Harstad's book 172 Hours on the Moon. So far 78,000 people from all over the globe applied.
Hmmm... are the founders of Mars One reading too much YA? See images from the project here.
