HI-SEAS Update: Moving to the next round!
If you recall from a previous post, I applied to the HI-SEAS (Hawaii Space Exploration Analogue & Simulation) Mission and Food Study by Cornell University/University of Hawaii. I received some pretty excited news this past weekend that I've advanced to the next stage of the "highly qualified" pool!!! About 700 applications were submitted, of which 150 applicants were selected as "highly qualified". After even more review, about 30 applicants have moved on to this next stage. This next stage involves a phone interview and the selection committee contacting references. So fingers crossed as I am super excited about this opportunity and contributing to eventual long-duration space flight missions to Mars!
