Mars One plans human settlement on the Red Planet by 2023

Mars One, a Dutch company, is aiming to establish a permanent human settlement on the Red Planet. The mission, to be funded from the sale of broadcasting rights, would see the first 4 settlers arrive on Mars in 2023.

The Mars One vision belongs to entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp and scientist Arno Wielders. They believe that if they can build a human settlement on Mars there will be sufficient money from broadcasting to finance the mission. As well as television shows documenting the build up, astronaut selection process and journey to Mars, video would be streamed continuously from the surface as soon as the first Mars One rover lands.

A feasability study has been completed, considering the technical, social and economic aspects of the mission, and the company has secured a number of sponsors. Bas Lansdorp told Sen: “with more than ten corporate sponsors secured, Mars One has moved to the next phase of preparing contracts with our suppliers and the astronaut selection procedure.”

The astronaut selection process is due to begin in 2013, and the company plans to have 40 astronauts trained for the mission, though only 4 would make the first journey

If Mars One achieves its ambitions it will see humans become a multi-planetary species.
