Mars One -It’s out of this world!
Bas Lansdorp M.Sc., Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Mars One
Mars One invites you to learn more about the next giant leap for humankind!
The mission goal is to establish a human settlement on Mars as the stepping stone for the human race on its voyage into the universe! As with the Apollo Moon landings, a human mission to Mars will inspire generations to believe that all things are possible and anything can be achieved.
Bas Lansdorp has never been one to let bold ventures intimidate him. A born entrepreneur, he sees potential and opportunity where others shy away. Gifted with an articulate vision and genuine enthusiasm, he moves people with his passion for science and the human mission to Mars.
Since starting Mars One in March 2011, this project has received support from scientists, engineers, businessmen and women and aerospace companies from all over the world and applicants are queuing to take part in the astronaut selection programme.
To prepare for this settlement the first unmanned mission is scheduled to depart in 2020. Crews will depart for their one-way journey to Mars starting in 2031; subsequent crews will depart every 26 months. Mars One is a global initiative aiming to make this everyone's mission, including yours. Everyone is invited to join Mars One’s efforts to make mankind a multiplanetary species.
