A One Way Ticket to Mars. Would you have the Courage?

​This was certainly a conversation that had everyone on the edge of their seat. I could hardly get any of my questions in because all those who were watching kept sending their own questions through and let me tell you, they were going deep. We discussed:

  1. How growing up in outback Australia has prepared Dianne for lockdown and a one-way ticket to Mars.
  2. What it is that makes her want to explore what is on the edge of possible.
  3. If she decided not to enter into a relationship once she was picked.
  4. How she will say goodbye forever to her loved ones.
  5. If there will be a wine fridge on the rocket!!!!!
