Expanding the Audience for Mars One: A Conversation with Nico Marquardt

Expanding the Audience for Mars One: A Conversation with Nico Marquardt

by Vince on Thursday, 15th December 2016 in Expert Opinions, People, Nico Marquardt

Nico Marquardt is an adviser to Mars One on matters involving social media, brand engagement, and marketing. Marquardt is currently the youngest member of the local parliament in Germany. He has created social media strategies for major election campaigns during the 2013 German federal elections and the state elections in 2014 and for corporations like American Express. He is CEO of the Rabbit Consulting Group, a global consulting firm that focuses on digital transformation and improving the management capacity of its clients. He is also a director at the German energy company EWP. This is an impressive resume for any person, but it’s fascinating to note that Marquardt is in his early twenties. All that said, space fanatics may know him even better as the boy who, in the year 2008 at age 13, wrote a research paper about the potential for a collision between a geosynchronous satellite and Asteroid 99942 Apophis, which in the year 2029 will pass only 31,300 kilometers over the Earth, much closer than the moon.

Earlier this year, I asked Marquardt about how he's helping Mars One. In this second of two parts, Marquardt discusses his involvement in Mars One and how marketing positively contributes to going to Mars. Also read part 1: Marketing Mars One: A Conversation with Nico Marquardt.
