It’s official: I’m moving on to the interview round

An email I received yesterday.


Dear Dr. Christopher Kashinath Patil,

We’re writing you today to confirm that you are one of 706 candidates that will be invited for an interview in your region with a Mars One selection committee.

From the originally 1058 pre-selected astronaut candidates, nearly one-third dropped out in the first phase of this selection round. Besides not being able to provide the medical statement or make their profile public, several others withdrew their candidacy due to personal reasons.

Regional interviews
The dates and locations of the regional interviews will be communicated over the next months. In your personal interview we expect you to show your knowledge, intelligence, adaptability and personality.

We’re looking forward to informing you on the next steps of the astronaut selection process!

Best regards,

Mars One Selection Committee

Great! Now all I need is knowledge, intelligence, adaptability, and personality.
