How will the astronaut selection proceed?
The selection process is made up of four rounds.
- During the initial round all candidates must submit an online application that consists of general information about the applicant, a motivation letter, a resume and a one minute video that answers provided questions and explains their reasoning.
- Candidates making it to the second round are required to obtain a medical statement of good health from their physician and will be invited for an individual video interview with Mars One.
- During the third round candidates will participate in group challenges.
- In the final selection round, international groups of four candidates will be placed in isolation to face multiple challenges. An individual in-depth Mars Settler Suitability Interview (MSSI) is also part of the final selection round.
