Five South Africans are one step closer to being the first humans on Mars. The one way trip to establish a colony on Mars was narrowed down to just 100 candidates yesterday from an initial 200 000 plus applicants. The Mars 100 include 5 South African candidates who will now go into teams and train at the replica of the Mars Outpost. The planned launch and one way trip to March is scheduled for 2024.
Here’s our Saffa hopefuls who made the top 100.
Here’s two of their application videos…a blonde theoretical physicist and a 19 year old bushveld boytjie.
Will be rad to have a local on Mars hey.
