Anyone hoping to grab one of the new .mars internet domain names when they become available next week may be in for a disappointment. In an effort to prevent cyber-squatting, ICANN, the body responsible for the allocation of top level domains, has said that the new addresses will only be available to Martian citizens. In order to successfully obtain a .mars domain, applicants will need to demonstrate that they have a working knowledge of Martian geology and its atmosphere (which is relatively easy) and that they have been resident there for at least six months (which isn't).
