The Mars One Foundation is working to colonize Mars by the year 2025. People seem to be excited about it, as 200,000 people have signed up to be the first to colonize the Red Planet. Keep reading to find out what it's going to take to try and have a human colony on Mars by 2025. 

From Inquisitr:

The Mars One foundation announced on Tuesday that their planned expedition, which will see four individuals sent to Mars, has secured its lead suppliers for a 2018 unmanned mission. Elements needed for this trip included a communications satellite and a robotic lander.


If the 2018 unmanned mission is a success, then they plan on sending a manned shuttle in 2025.

Landsorp stated that the unmanned mission is the “most important and most difficult step of actually getting humans to Mars.”

He also described what the first humans to land in 2025 will have to undergo. It’s hoped that they will be followed by additional crews of four, who will be sent out every two years.

Mars One have admitted that they are currently examining “a range of funding scenarios” to raise the $6 billion that is needed for the first humans to arrive.


Oh yeah...the people who would go to Mars have to be okay with never coming back to Earth.

Applicants are apparently fine with the knowledge that they would have to live out the rest of their lives on the Red Planet. This is because a one-way journey there severely reduces the company’s costs, plus there’s also the major factor that there’s no Kennedy Space Center launch pad on Mars at the moment.


Do you think Mars One will put humans on Mars by 2025?
