This is pretty cool!

The Mars One project wants to establish a human settlement on Mars with teams of four departing in 2025 with one-way tickets. They have been looking for candidates for a while and now they have some finalists. One of those finalists is Denver resident Elena Finley!

The project took in over 200,000 applications and now Elena is one of the 705 finalists to make that one way trip to Mars to help start a civilization there. Good luck Elena!
