dailymail.co.uk Wrote:Mars One recently made headlines after it revealed a shortlist of 100 applicants who could win a one-way mission to the red planet in 2025.
Now one of these candidates has spoken out against the 'dangerously flawed' project that he says could cause people to lose faith in genuine space research.
Dr Joseph Roche, an assistant professor at Trinity College's School of Education in Dublin, says the Mars One project is disorganised, impractical and has already failed to live up to its promises.
The former Nasa researcher told Medium's Elmo Keep that as he progressed in the rounds, he began to see a major problems with the competition.
He claims some leading contenders for the mission bought their way into their current high-profile position and they are encouraged to 'donate' any appearance fees.
