100 Candidates Have Been Selected
Heidi did not make the last round of candidates.
See the latest Virginian Pilot article about Heidi.
I spoke with Heidi on the 16th and although she is disappointed that she is no long a candidate for the Mars One project, she believes that the application process has opened a lot of doors for her and allowed her to network with other professionals who have the same interests. She plan is to continue her education and when she get out of the army, she will pursue a career that will allow her to focus space and space exploration.
January 19 NPR Interview
January 13 CNN Interview!!!
Heidi and a colleague discuss the experience at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS).
Heidi has now made through the next round of screening and is currently 1 of the 705 remaining candidates. See Heidi's article in the Virginia Pilot.
I had the privilege to teach Heidi for two years and I am very excited to see that her determination and hard work is giving her the chance to live her dream!!!
