Simulation Outpost Alpha
Simulation Outpost Alpha will be the first prototype of many - providing a training facility on Earth and familiarization for a life on Mars.
The construction technology behind Outpost Alpha will match the simplified level of outpost complexity. The entire outpost will be made of rigid modules - even the "inflatable" volumes. Mars One is working towards a production method that allows for easy container shipping, easy assembling techniques, and potential module parts replacements.
Simulation Outpost Alpha is a simplified hard shelled construction with only very basic subsystems for atmospheric control and general safety. There will be no working air locks and no internal pressure, both of which are required on Mars to hold the outpost structure intact.
The outpost architecture consists of six lander modules and two elongated inflatables. The main area is inside the inflatables, providing approximately 200 square meters for daily living and food production.
The two centered lander modules will provide access technology to the Martian surface and the four remaining lander modules will mainly contain subsystems supporting the entire outpost.
A location for the Simulation Outpost Alpha has not been chosen yet. Mars One still accepts location proposals from interested regions and institutions.
Potential locations should meet the following requirements:
- Flat area, paved or levelled for outpost setup, minimum 50 x 50 m
- Additional buildings / housing for crew and PR
- Additional buildings for technology overview and testing
- General access for container and crew
- Water / waste / power technology
- General outpost maintenance service

In February 2015 Mars One announced 100 Round Three Astronaut Candidates to proceed to the next round of the Mars One Astronaut Selection Process.
Round Three takes place over the course of 5 days, in which groups of 10 to 15 candidates are formed. “The Mars One selection committee will then set up group dynamic challenges and provide study materials related to the challenges,” explains Dr. Norbert Kraft, Chief Medical Officer of Mars One. “This allows us to observe how the candidates work in a group setting.”
Following the challenges, the Mars100 will be screened to 40 candidates that will enter the next selection phase: isolation. Candidates will spend nine days in an isolation unit. “It is very important that the candidates are observed closely to examine how they act in situations of prolonged close contact with one another,” says Dr. Kraft.
After the isolation phase, 30 candidates are chosen to partake in a Mars Settler Suitability Interview (MSSI). The MSSI measures suitability for long duration Space missions and Mars settlement and will last approximately 4 hours. 24 candidates are selected after the interview and will be offered full-time employment with Mars One.
The next selection rounds will take place in September, 2016.
