Darlene (Dar) Denis: Mars One Applicant and Colony Settler Candidate

Greeting and Salutations Blog Readers ;~) This blog is my invitation to the Mars One selection committee, my fellow Mars One Applicants and Supporters and the population of Earth to get to know me, both as an Earthling and as a future Martian ;~P

Here I will try to post as often as possible regarding and concerning my thoughts and experiences as I engage in the most thrilling experience of my life thus far…The Mars One Candidate Applicant Selection Process.  I will post links to my personal interviews, as well as provide opportunities for visitors to comment and ask questions. I will also be posting about my personal history, my motives for applying and wanting to go to Mars and what I hope to accomplish as a Mars One Astronaut/Colony Settler. 

I am honored that the Mars One Selection Committee chose me to interview in the second round and I am looking forward to meeting them in person.  I am really enjoying the interviews so far and the opportunities to “Talk-Up” Mars One. It is an amazing vision and opportunity and I am thrilled to be a part of it all.

Tomorrow the ETSU film students, Jesse Hillyer & crew will  be here at The Store around 2pm to begin filming for their documentary project. My Mars One candidacy is the focus of the documentary.
