The project Mars One (Mars one)

An interesting project called Mars One plans to populate the planet in human beings.
It is planned to send a crew of four people on a journey for 7 months, and then send a new team and so every two years, new people will join the settlement.
The first settlement to be established in April 2023, and by 2033, Mars will live and work more than 20 people.

Mars One project team working on the plan since the beginning of 2011. In the first year it has been extensive and thorough feasibility study on the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčlearning all the details with numerous experts and expert organizations. This analysis included not only the technical elements but also comprehensively discussed the financial, psychological and ethical aspects.

Mars One has an impressive list of people who support the mission to Mars. One of them is Prof. Dr. Gerard Hooft, Nobel laureate physicist in 1999.



In 2011, members of the Mars One project worked on non-public mission. Once the mission was planned out, Mars One Contact supplier prerequisites. All potential suppliers have been delighted with the apolitical, commercial, manned flight to Mars and confirmed its ability to produce components as needed.


It will be a year in which to begin the selection of astronauts. Who will be among the first four people on Mars, and of those who follow them every two years after that? Anyone who feels that he can cope with this task, can apply for the position. There will be a total of 40 astronauts. Of those wishing to fly will be selected the strongest physically and mentally.

Mars One will build a copy of the Martian settlement in the desert in the world to prepare the astronauts and to provide a realistic environment for testing equipment. The selection of astronauts and their training in a simulated Mars base will be broadcast on television and on the Internet for public viewing.

Mission Support will be launched to Mars in January 2016. The module will land on the Red Planet in October 2016 with a cargo of 2,500 kg of food or other materials. Landing will be made near the place where the supposed location of the outpost.


In 2018 Mars rover will land. While the general location of the base is known, the rover's task will be to find a better place in this area.


In 2021 all components of the settlement reached your destination. In general, it will be two residential unit, two units of life support, the second support module second rover. The two rovers are transported all the components found in the location of the base and prepare them for the arrival of astronauts.


All water and oxygen to create an atmosphere will be ready in early 2022, when the Earth's crew received the green light to the launch of the first team. Each component of the transport vehicle will be launched into low Earth orbit, where they will be gathered together. September 14th, 2022 will go down in history as the beginning of the first flight of four astronauts since the last check. Each stage of the flight will be available for viewing on the website of the project in operation 24/7.


The astronauts will land in 2023 and become the first people in history to set foot on Mars. They connect all modules settlement with the help of the rovers. Then they will install solar panels and begin his great exploration of Mars, their new planet.


In June 2025 a second group of land. To their arrival Martian base construction already completed. The second group also bring new equipment. For example, it may be several rovers that will help them to learn their new planet.

Can I have children astronauts on Mars?

In the early years of settlement on Mars would not be a good place for children. The choice of medical institutions will be limited and the group is too small. In addition, a person's ability to reproduce in reduced gravity is not known, and there is not enough research on whether a fetus to grow and develop normally in such conditions. Therefore, Mars One urges residents of the settlement are not trying to have children.
In order to create a real Martian colony, the presence of children is very important. This will be an important moment in the study of Mars.
