Update~>5*24*14<~I am a Mars One
Candidate! Officially I am now
one of 705 who have qualified for an interview with Mars One
committee. A few changes in the info I updated last: If I am
selected, training will begin next year (2015) and will be a full
time position for 8 years, so my time off/time & energy I can
reasonably invest in/on outside relationships will likely be
minimal and at this point unpredictable. Current launch date is set
for some time in late 2024. My goal is to be one of the members of
this first crew so all relationships will become extremely
"long-distance" at that point. lol I do not expect a lot of people
to jump at the prospect of having a long distance relationship with
a earthling/martian. However, if you are one of those rare
exceptions/people who see such a reality as a challenge they want
to experience please do not hesitate to contact me. I definitely
want to know you! ;~)
