Mars One

27th March 2018

In January, Year 5 wrote letters of application to the Mars One Space Programme.

Mars One is a company that plans to set up a human colony on Mars and needs 100 astronauts to train and be the first people to make the journey.

There are 5 characteristics that they are looking for in their astronauts. They are: resilience, adaptability, curiosity, trust and creativity. The children had to explain how they fulfil these criteria and give examples to persuade the people at Mars One to give them the job of an astronaut.

Their letters were then sent to Mars One and last week we received this letter back along with posters and badges.

Well Done Year 5. It looks as though you could be future astronauts.
