Cassandra Morphy: Mensa’s Favorite Future Martian

For those Mensa members who may not already know Cassie, we have a real-life future Martian in our midst. Cassandra Morphy is a candidate for the Mars One Project. The selection process for Mars One is highly competitive. Initially, 202,586 applicants yielded 1,058 prospective candidates who made it through the application process for the Mars One Project. After a competitive interview process, the number of candidates has been narrowed to exactly 100 individuals from all walks of life. There will be additional selection rounds to follow. Central New Jersey Mensa is honored to have Cassandra as a member and as one of these elite candidates leading the way.

Cassie will answer any questions you may have about the feasibility of a colony on Mars. She is prepared for a highly successful one-way trip. While a colony on Mars may sound like Science Fiction, we live in a time when science fiction has quickly developed into science fact in many arenas.

To better understand the scope of the Mars One Project, a segment of one of their recent press releases is included below:

“Mars One is a not-for-profit foundation that will establish permanent human life on Mars. Human settlement on Mars is possible today. Mars One’s mission plan integrates core technologies that are readily available from industry leaders worldwide. The first footprint on Mars and lives of the crew thereon will captivate and inspire this generation and generations to come. It is this public interest that will help finance this human mission to Mars. -See more at: http://www.mars-one.com
