June 27, 2012: SpaceChronology endorses Mars One initiative!

Mars One is a private initiative that aims to establish human settlement on Mars in 2023. After some deliberation, SpaceChronology is proud to announce full endorsement of the effort led by a Dutch researcher Bas Lansdorp.

We urge every user of the Internet to spread the word about this initiative to facilitate its successful execution. While SpaceChronology typically favors public funding spending of robotic exploration missions, this effort is different, because it will rely entirely on private funding generated with a feasible commercial plan.

While some technical aspects of the mission need to be thoroughly addressed, everything is within the reach of current technology. Mars One will mostly rely on existing equipment, which adds further credibility to its planners. The most funds saving aspect of the mission, is that martian settlers will volunteer to permanently settle on Mars, without the desire to go back to Earth at any time in the future. The return mission from Mars is the most difficult, experts agree, in terms of both technological obstacles and the necessary funding. Mars One completely bypasses the return mission and offers a realistic concept on an extremely short timetable of settling Mars by 2023.

WISE, NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, has a new view of Barnard 3, or IRAS Ring G159.6-18.5, that is awash in bright green and red dust clouds. Interstellar clouds like these are stellar nurseries, where baby stars are being born.
