Who would have ever thought that one day there would be a possibility of living on Mars?

What if you could travel to Mars and start a new life?

Well, South African Adriana Marais is another day closer to her one way ticket to Mars.

Aspiring Martian and Theoretical physicist doing research in the field of quantum biology, Dr. Adriana Marais is patiently waiting for the day she leaves South Africa – in fact it is what motivates her to get up in the morning.

Recently, Adriana appeared on a new web series celebrating remarkable South Africans called ‘Blue Couch Sessions’, to voice her motivation behind her decision to go to Mars and never come back.

Marais will be one of the speakers at this year’s final Standard Bank Business Breakfast Series and it’s not to be missed!

Not only will she be speaking about her future new life, but on how we are living in a new era of innovation in space exploration and the possibility of contributing to the discovery of evidence of extra terrestrial life.
