Cercasi Aspiranti Marziani per viaggio senza ritorno su Marte ≈ Mars One – Human Settlement of Mars

Un’organizzazione fiamminga sta arruolando quattro cosmonauti per un tragitto senza rientro su Marte. Il primo step sarà di spedire nel 2016 una prima missione robotica, e nel 2023 far decollare i primi astronauti (umani) per dare vita a una comunità stabile. Chi è tanto spericolato da decollare? Le valutazioni sono aperte. Mars One, una no-profit olandese, ha dato il via in questo giorno a New York alle selezioni per quattro astronauti che nel 2023 potranno partire per Marte per gettare le fondamenta di una comunità umana. Il progetto ha già preso 10mila nomi: i pretendenti hanno un’età inclusa tra i diciotto e sessantadue anni e la maggior parte sono maschi. La società olandese non ha attualmente fissato un posto esatto, dove costruire un’installazione vivibile, sostenibile e concepita per ospitare nuovi cosmonauti ogni due anni. Si pondera a un luogo tra quaranta e quarantacinque gradi latitudine Nord del pianeta rosso, dove gli astronauti potranno avere sufficienti mezzi come energia solare e acqua (sotto forma di ghiaccio).  Gli aspiranti alla temeraria missione non dovranno essere per forza uomini di scienza: le sole qualità desiderate, oltre alla maggiore età, sono intelletto, ingegno, fermezza e solidità

psicologica e probabilmente qualche competenza tecnica. Ti senti un marziano sulla Terra e vorresti tornare a casa? Questo è il sito dove inviare la tua candidatura: mars-one.com. L’invio della propria designazione online attraverso l’application form sarà il primo dei quattro step che unitamente rappresentano il procedimento di selezione di Mars One. Il Round One proseguirà oltre cinque mesi e si finirà il 31 agosto 2013. I concorrenti scelti daranno forma al primo nucleo del personale di bordo che atterrerà su Marte nel 2023. La scelta finale di preferire i primi coloni sarà determinata da un voto del pubblico. – Mars One starts its search for the first humans on Mars: NEW YORK, Monday, 22nd April 2013 – Mars One is happy to announce the launch of its astronaut selection program today. The search has begun for the first humans to set foot on Mars and make it their home. Mars One invites would-be Mars settlers from anywhere in the world to submit an online application via apply.mars-one.com. This online application will be the first of the four rounds that together make the Mars One selection procedure. Round One will run for over five months and end on 31st August 2013. Applicants selected at the end of this round will include the first crew that will land on Mars in 2023. Mars One selection committees will hone the search for the first crew in three subsequent rounds and further training.“We are very excited about launching the

selection program. Round One is where we open the doors to Mars for everyone on Earth. This is an international mission and it is very important for the project that anyone anywhere can ask themselves: Do I want this? Am I ready for this? If the answer is yes then we want to hear from you,” said Bas Lansdorp, co-founder of Mars One. In the last year Mars One received 10,000 messages from prospective applicants from over 100 countries. Mars One expects an unprecedented number of applications and even more internet users visiting the application website to support their favorite candidates. Applicants are given the choice of publicly sharing and promoting their application page. While Mars One experts will choose which candidates progress to Round 2, everyone will have the opportunity to know the aspiring settlers and give them their vote of confidence. Applicants will pay a small administration fee that varies across nations according to their per capita GDP. The variable fee makes the program equally accessible for applicants from all nations and also reduces the number of insincere entries. Mars One is looking for applicants who are both mature and interesting. Beyond Round Four,in the seven-year period preceding their flight to Mars,all the potential settlers will be given the skills they will need on Mars and on their journey there. No particular academic or professional background is considered a prerequisite for selection. “Gone are the days when bravery and the number of hours flying a supersonic jet were the top criteria,” said Norbert Kraft, Mars One’s Chief Medical Director and former

NASA senior researcher. “For this mission of permanent settlement we are more concerned with how well each astronaut lives and works with others and their ability to deal with a lifetime of challenges.” Throughout the astronaut selection program, Mars One will select applicants who have good physical and mental health and show five key character traits: Resilience, Adaptability, Curiosity, Ability to trust others, and Creativity/Resourcefulness. In the last stage when 24-40 candidates have been fully trained and qualified, the final decision of choosing the first settlers will be decided by an audience vote. “In a 1000 years, everyone on Earth will still remember who the first humans on Mars were, just like Neil Armstrong has etched in our memories forever. This makes the selection of the first crew to a different planet a very important election; in my opinion more important than most elections. We hope the whole world will join Mars One in our democratic search of the envoys of mankind to Mars, ” Lansdorp said.About Mars One: The Mars One Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that will send humans to Mars in 2023 to establish the first permanent settlement outside Earth. Before the first settlers land on Mars a self-sustaining habitat will be set up with help of rovers and more settlers will follow every two years. A realistic mission plan has been designed using only existing technology available through the private space industry. The first footprint on Mars will fascinate and inspire generations; it is this public interest that will help finance this human mission to Mars. – Cercasi Marziani – http://goodnews.ws/
