Transcript of Mars One

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"
Road Map
What's the next step?
It is the Mission Objective of Mars One to establish a human settlement on the planet Mars in 2023
The purpose of such an extraordinary
project is to endeavor into the
unknown, help people believe that
anything is possible and significantly
increase our knowledge and understanding of the universe. As with the Apollo Moon landings, a human mission to Mars will inspire generations.
2011 - Foundation mission plan developed
2013 - Astronaut selection. Replica settlement built
2014 - Supply preparation
2016 - Supply mission. 2500 Kg of spare parts
2018 - First settlement rover lands
2021 - Settlement established. Second rover lands
2022 - Atmosphere, water and oxygen production ready
2023 - First human set foot on Mars
2025 - Second crew arrives. Settlement expansion
Other Risks and challenges
An estimated 500 million people watched the landing of the first man onto the moon in 1969.
By 2023, four billion people will have access to video images.
The Mars One Project will be monitored by the not for profit Mars One foundation, and the for-profit company Interplanetary Media Group.
Mars One will have extensive 24/7 HD coverage of every stage of the project from astronaut training to landings to ongoing life on Mars. IMG will use global media coverage to finance the mission.
- Human Life - Mars is unforgiving
- Cost overruns - Budget
- Technical risks - including the performance and reliability of the hardware
Risk Mitigation/Contingency Plan
Mars One is not the first to ponder the idea establishing civilization on mars. What will be some of the things that ensure us success?
Emigration – The Mars One astronauts will depart Earth assuming that they will never return. This radically changes the mission requirements, reducing the need for return vehicles associated with currently unavailable technologies and far greater costs.

Solar panels – Eliminate the need for the launch of nuclear reactors, thus saving time and money.

Simple rovers – Rovers will be used to construct the settlement and for general transportation again saving time and money.

No new developments – The entire plan revolves around the use of existing, validated technology

No politics – Suppliers are chosen on a balance of price and quality, not through political or national preferences
The End Result
In 2023, the whole world will watch as humanity takes the first step on Mars and thus, initiating the beginning of outer space colonisation.
The epic exploration of a new world, the very first human settlement on another planet and the next big event of the century will be under 24/7 HD Media coverage by Mars One and Interplanetary Media Group.

The world waits... 24/07/2023
Be part of the next small step for man. Don't miss out!
Mars One intends to maintain an ongoing, global media event, from astronaut selection to landing to ongoing life of the Mars colonisation
The estimated overall cost of putting four people on Mars, including all hardwares, training and supplies is six billion US dollars.
Estimation includes operation expenditures and margins. Certain components are fairly accurate for example the Space X's Falcon Heavy rocket.
To give an idea, here is the medial revenue generated by the Olympics.
The best part of the mission is everything is planned on existing technologies available from proven suppliers. No new mission hardware will be developed.
Primary Hardware Components
- Falcon Heavy Launcher
- Mars Transit Vehicle
- Space X Dragon Capsule Lander
1. Life Support Unit
2. Supply Unit
3. Living Unit
4. Human Lander
5. Rover Lander
- Rover
- Mars Suit
- Communication System
"We choose to go to the Moon, not because it is easy, but because it is hard” John F. Kennedy
What about the gap?
Over the long run, there is no doubt the broadcasting right and sponsorship can finance the mission.

Challenge lies with convincing sponsors and investors human mission to Mars is feasible

Technical milestones are set up to increase feasibility.
- Operation risks - inadequate payload, communication breakdown
- Financial risks - funding before media event
