I just saw in your recent alumni email that you have a report on this student that is going on the Mars One mission. I just wanted to suggest that you should be a bit more careful when choosing these stories, as it is very likely that the whole Mars One project is an enterprise with no real future that only justifies itself through the hype that it is creating.

There’s pieces of news backing this up, and honestly it seems quite surprising that so many people can take it so seriously, but I don’t think many of these people are really sure of what they are talking about. I can probably find more evidence if you so require.

If despite this you think this is still a relevant piece of news, fine, but I’d like to think that your newsletter aims for a rigour stronger than that any hopeful news about this mission could have.
