“To be part of this Advisory Team for Mars One is both an honour and a challenge. I think this is an exciting and cutting edge project that will impact our society and the way we view the world. History has been made when the impossible is made possible and where the struggle is the impetus to change. For this project to move forward and take its rightful place in history it will need the commitment of an interdisciplinary team of advisors, who believe in Mars One and who are ready to contribute their expertise and knowledge where needed. I for one am ready for this challenge.”
