+Thomas Schwarz Well the bit about the MIT study sounds made up, as there is no real issue. In fact the only issue occurs if you don't use any local resources, and instead ship it all from Earth. But as Mars One plans to get it's water from below the surface, and extract oxygen, then there is no issue. It even states in the paper published by the students that there is no problem if local resources are used. Of course no one from the media read past the point where it said that they would die; but why should they have read more, the media's job is to make things up and delay everything, nothing else. Bas knows this very well, so I'm sure they would not have spent several months sorting out an issue that doesn't exist. Unless there is another problem that they have not publicised. What they have said is that they would like the open source all the concept design studies, in the near future, as finding errors in their plans and technology may not be as bad as it sounds, especially for the colonists: it may keep them alive. I'm sure a lot of critics would love to tear Mars One apart using the studies. Paragon Space Development Corporation plan to release theirs in late march this year, so I would keep a look out for that. In fact Bas may have actually been talking about that during that interview  as Paragon will make the life support units and the spacesuits, which are arguably two of the most important components for the mission. He may have said they have been reviewing the study, referring to the Paragon study not the MIT study. This is also the reason why Lockheed Martin and SSTL are not doing anything at the moment. It's because they are between contracts, as Mars One is reviewing their study before contracting them to begin building them. (I think that comes next)

May I just add that you should check out Ryan Macdonald's youtube channel. He is a Mars One round 3 candidate and he also made a video regarding the MIT study back in October. Unfortunately the message about why people thought they would die never really got spread, but it needs to because if anyone ever says to you that "them Mars One colonists are gonna die pretty soon like" then all you have to say is "that's not true, just read the whole paper and don't listen to anything the media say because it's usually wrong regarding Mars One.

500 years ago Explorers had no communication with their homeland. They were heading off to an unknown land or drop off the edge of the map. Mars One 'mariners' know where they're going. They can communicate with Earth.
What a great chance for Human civilisation. This is Human Evolution in progress. Wish I could live long enough to see a city on Mars.

If you shout the 100 finalists to a 'Macdonalds' breakfast you might get a chance. :)
