I had a great time with the Astronomy Club at Bays Mountain Planetarium! Thanks again to William Troxel for inviting me to be the keynote speaker at their Feb. club meeting. I really enjoyed meeting all the club members and talking Mars One with everyone.

I look forward to visiting Bays Mountain Planetarium and the Astronomy Club  in the future.

For Astronomy Club members who are visiting my blog: please take a moment and comment on this post so I will know you came by. Thanks :~)

Supporting Mars One

Supporting Mars One

As the second round selection process gets underway part of my mission as an Mars One Applicant is to spread the word far and wide about Mars One fundraising efforts. 

Mars One is a private, non profit entity and as such our success depends on individual donations. There are two ways to support Mars One financially, and this crowd sourcing fundraiser is one of them. By clicking on the link here, you will do two things. The first is you will be telling Mars One that I shared the link info with you, thereby giving me credit and letting Mars One know I am serious about supporting Mars One and I am getting the word out to others as well. The other thing you will be doing is making a donation to Mars One and this tells them that you think their vision has merit and want us to succeed.

There are several different levels you can donate at and each has a unique “perk” attached to you. 

The other way, is to go to Mars-One.com and order any of the merchandise available. Mars One has some really awesome apparel available, including t-shirts & hoodies for men and women, as well as coffee cups, stickers and posters. 

Either way or both, I hope you will do all you can to support Mars One as well as my desire to earn one of the spots in the Mars One MissionTraining Program. 

Thanks so much in advance.

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.


Mars or Bust!
