One way mission to Mars
Dianne Mcgrath from Melbourne was one of over 200,000 people worldwide who applied for the job.
After being shortlisted as an astronaut candidate in late 2013, Dianne underwent medical tests and an interview with the selection committee.
On 16 February 2015, Dianne became one of the 7 Australians, and 100 people globally, to progress to the Round 3 astronaut pool.
She next faces the international team challenge to see if she has “the right stuff”. Dianne is a sustainability expert doing a PhD in Environmental Engineering.
