Live Chat With An Australian Mars One Candidate Right Now!

What would you ask someone who’s volunteered to spend the rest of their life on Mars? To celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release of The Martian, one of Australia’s Mars One expedition candidates, Josh Richards, has started a five-day five-day public challenge to survive in a simulated Martian base at Sydney’s Circular Quay.

Josh is taking your questions right now!

Richards, who could land a one-way ticket to Mars in 2026, will be required to undertake up to three survival challenges a day, set by a team of experts & scientists. These challenges have been designed to emulate those faced by Mark Watney (Matt Damon) in the The Martian — which hits Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, February 10.

You can also watch Josh go through the challenges via the live video feed at www.bringhimhome.com.au and follow along via Twitter @BringhimHOME.
