Tonight I sat and watched, for an hour or more, that little red dot soar across our sky. So close I could reach out and touch it. This is the closest I will be to it while still on earth.
Years from now, I will look at a little blue dot soar across a martian sky. And remember. #MarsOne #Marsonecandidate #Marstronauts

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” #marsone #journey #noreturn #corinthians #quote #nonreligious #marsonecandidate #spacesuit #marstronaut #astronaut

The #Mars-One #mission is the people of Earths collective effort to establish a human colony on Mars.  As a part of the programs ‘baby steps’ it is sourcing funds via Indiegogo to contribute to the 2018 recon’ mission and to measure global support. I am asking you to get involved and buy a perk for as little as $2.00!

It’s exciting to think these systems may one day soon sit on the surface of Mars contributing to the food supply, oxygen levels and mental health of the first human inhabitants of that planet in recorded history.
