Mars One will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Crews of four will depart every two years, starting in 2026. Our first unmanned mission will be launched in 2020. Join the Global Mars One Community and participate in our mission to Mars.
Mars One designed a mission using only existing technology. In the coming years, a demonstration mission, communication satellites, two rovers and several cargo missions will be sent to Mars. A reliable living environment will be waiting for the astronauts when they leave Earth.
The global search has begun for the first humans to set foot on Mars and make it their home. In an extensive training period, candidates will learn the skills they will need on Mars and on their journey there. The combined skill set of each astronaut team member will cover a very wide range of disciplines.
In 1000 years, everyone on Earth will still remember who the first humans on Mars were. More than 200,000 men and women from around the world responded to the first call for astronauts.
The whole world will watch and experience this journey. We are all explorers. Everyone, including you, can participate in space exploration. This can be your mission to Mars!
Join our global effort by sharing our vision with your friends, supporting us and perhaps becoming a Mars astronaut yourself.
