火を燃える

I think mostly it’s about the fact that people somehow can realize, ‘If a guy who looks like that can work at NASA, then I can too.’ That’s awesome. If in any way I can help motivate kids or other people to come join us here to work on these fun things, that would be so rewarding for me.

First Planetary Resources

Now Mars-One

:D

Mars One will establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. A habitable settlement will be waiting for the settlers when they land. The settlement will support them while they live and work on Mars the rest of their lives. Every two years after 2023 an additional crew will arrive, such that there is a real living, growing community on Mars. Mars One has created a technical plan for this mission that is as simple as possible. For every component of the mission we have identified at least one potential supplier. Mars One invites you to join us in this next giant leap for mankind!
