Highwood, IL (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Mars One has announced that they have narrowed the pool yet again for the hopeful astronauts looking for the chance to travel to the Red Planet. Omri Amrany, co-founder of The Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany was notified earlier this week that he is still in the running. In addition, a CBS film crew stopped into the studio to film the Amranys as part of an interview segment on the Mars One project. The interview will air on CBS next Tuesday, May 20th at 10 p.m.
The Mars One applicants have now been cut down from 1058, to just 705 people, meaning that 353 hopefuls from around the world have been eliminated from the selection program to become the first human Mars colonists. With an original pool of over 200,000 applicants, Omri said he is excited about the news that he is still in the running.
“I’d like to add to the song Imagine by John Lennon, - Imagine all the people, gather all their knowledge and energy to continue and extend the human society, to colonize the galaxy and beyond," said Omri, reflecting on the news.
According to a news release on the Mars One website, the remaining candidates will be interviewed by the Mars One selection committee.
Mars One Chief Medical Officer Norbert Kraft, MD says, “We’re incredibly excited to start the next phase of Round 2, where we begin to better understand our candidates who aspire to take such a daring trip. They will have to show their knowledge, intelligence, adaptability and personality.”
Mars One is currently negotiating with media companies to report on the interviews, to share the stories of the 705 aspiring "Martians" with the world. Stay tuned for more news on Omri's involvement with the Mars One project. Learn more about the mission here.
