Mars One aims human colonization of Mars by April 2023

The company has set the time frame for April 2023, the month that a human being will first set foot onto Mars. Mars One is executing the most ambitious privately funded space mission yet and fulfilling the human fantasy of dwelling on Martian lands.

The private Dutch company 'Mars One' has conceived this unique residential idea. For those who opt to settle on Mars, there will be no turning back. Their residence on the dusty planet would be permanent, although every two years, the established colony would welcome new residents, thereby slowly growing the Mars-based community.

With the backing of the 1999 Physics Nobel Prize winner, Professor Dr. Gerard T Hooft, and the interest of several major privately operated commercial space corporations and suppliers that are capable of building the equipment and gear necessary to make the mission a success, one should not harbor any doubt about this project.

'Mars One' first and foremost plans to send over four astronauts in a journey that will take a mind-numbing seven months. Come 2033, the program hopes to have over 20 astronauts living on Mars. “This is going to be private enterprise, only private firms are going to contribute. No political mumbo-jumbo, no tax-payer’s money will be involved,” Dr. Hooft said in a statement.

With NASA’s budget cut, privatized space travel has become the next frontier for wealthy businessmen with dreams of becoming the real-life Tony Stark. Among the dreamers, there are some that are acting out on loftier ambitions. The team from the 'Mars One' project is setting out to make the colonization of Mars a reality, now one can forget about the moon and look forward to living on Mars.

'Mars One' plans on funding the continuous mission through a media spectacle that will allow anyone to stream and monitor the progress. In other words, such a widely publicized event would be prime real estate for advertisers and sponsors.

The aspiration is lofty, but private exploration is taking off — literally. Just last month, the privately built and launched Space X Dragon capsule was able to link with the International Space Station. Private corporations like Virgin Galactic, Space X and even Red Bull are racing to become the next household name that children will be talking about for generations to come.

The plan will begin only four years from now in 2016, when a communications satellite and a supply mission will be sent to Mars. With the arrival of 2018, a rover will be transported to Mars with the purpose of seeking an ideal location and best living condition to prepare for the permanent human settlement on the red planet. On 2020, the living capsules, supplies, life support unit and a rover tasked with reassembling the settlement components will be sent to Mars, preparing the colony for habitation. The first four astronauts will begin their journey on September 2022, landing on the planet on April of 2023.

We all are eager to see humans take on Martian lands with the onset of 2023 and not the other way round as shown in movies.
