A Private Dutch company hopes to acquire enough funding to build a Mars Colony by 2023. The project being called Mars One has begun to receive its first sponsors for the colony which plans to fund most of its ambitious activities with a reality TV show.
The ambitious project, called Mars One, plans to drop four astronauts off on Mars by April 2023. New members of the nascent colony would arrive every two years after that, and none of the Colony settlers would ever return to Earth.
Currently the NASA Mars Rover Mission is searching the planet for an ideal location to establish the first ever human colony outside of Planet Earth (that we know of).
If plans go through, and the project gets the proper funding, do you believe it would be one the most anticipated TV events ever, and would you tune in?
