The Red Planet Show: Can Mars One’s Reality TV Pay for Space Colonization?!

Mars One plans to establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023.

The idea is that a habitable settlement will be built in advance of human arrival by robots and warmly await those courageous first settlers who dare take such a historic one-way-ticket journey. The settlement will support all colonists while they live and work on Mars for the rest of their lives. Every two years after 2023 an additional crew is to arrive and thereby enlarge the Martian population until there is a living, growing and, eventually, self-sufficient human community.

Mars One has created a technical plan for this mission that is allegedly as simple as possible. They have identified at least one potential supplier for every component necessary for the mission. But arguably the most unique part of the mission to Mars is that funding is to come from “the biggest media spectacle in history” – a reality TV show documenting and airing straight to your couch the daily trials and tribulations of the first Martians.

So, how about volunteering for a one-way-ticket to Mars?!

Or do you prefer to watch the daily Red Planet Reality TV Show from the comfort and safety of your couch?

This movie below shows how Mars One plans to establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. Special appearance by their ambassabor Nobel Prize winner prof. dr. Gerard ‘t Hooft.
