Mars One Monday rounds up the past week’s reports on the project to send people on a one-way journey to Mars.
No official news from Mars One this week, but Bas Landorp and several Mars One candidates attended the Mars Society’s International Conference in Houston last week. Huffington Post blogger and Mars candidate Jan Millsapps wrote about the cultural contrast between the Mars Society’s members and the people hoping to settle the red planet. Californian candidate Kenya Armbrister posted pictures from the conference on her website. You can see video from the conference, including the evening session dedicated to Mars One, on the Mars Society's Livestream page (registration required)

- ITV’s Good Morning Britain interviewed Texas candidate Sonia Van Meter.
- The Cockburn Gazette spoke with Australian candidate Josh Richards before his appearance at National Science Week.
- De Week Krandt interviewed Dutch candidate Wim Dijkshoorn, an anthropology student at Radboud University.
