Radio New Zealand: Mission to Mars

Is Mars colonization doomed from the start? Our own Haritina Mogosanu discusses the limitations of such efforts in an interview with Radio New Zealand National.

With her personal expertise in horticulture, Mogosanu discusses the implications of a recent study that critiques the Mars One projects as technologically premature. Food production provides one of the key limiting factors, and the new study suggests that colonists would start dying after only a few months of residence on the red planet. Mogosanu concurs with these findings and suggests some other challenges that will need to be overcome before humans will really be able to colonize Mars.
