(CNN) - The destination is Mars, in a manner of speaking. The red planet group hopes to enlist volunteers for its upcoming expedition to a remote Arctic island that boasts extreme conditions resembling those on Mars. The mission, which will simulate a manned trip to Mars, will take place between June and August on Devon Island, the largest uninhabited island in the world. Applicants must be in good physical condition and between 18 and 60 years of age. Scientific, engineering and wilderness experience are considered a plus as well as "literary skills."
