Greetings! My name is Stefan Chebotarev. I’m a programmer and web developer from Russia. Going into space and exploring other planets has always been my cherished dream. And Mars, being my favorite planet, has ever been attracting my tremendous interest. So I’d be greatly delighted and honored to be a part of the first human settlement on Mars. I believe that I possess all the required characteristics for being a perfect candidate for this unprecedented mission.
Scientific interests: programming, astronomy, physics, and biology. I’m a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy, in particular of Star Wars, Babylon 5, and John Tolkien’s works. Also, I enjoy reading classical English literature, especially works by Shakespeare. My sports: boxing, running, and swimming.
