The Overly Ambitious (and Possibly Nefarious) Mars One Mission Is Officially Kaput

Mars One, the overly ambitious company that planned to colonize the Red Planet and fund the project through a reality TV show, has officially been grounded.

The Mars One project Ventures, has repeatedly yielded to criticism of scientists and specialists. The organization promised wannabe space travelers that it would send them to the Red Planet to start the first human settlement, however, that it would not return them to Earth as it came up short on the technology to get them off the planet. The development of space ships for the delivery of colonists to Mars and the construction of their residential modules and life support systems was carried out by private contractors. In 2015, an insider whistleblower claimed the group had no real plan to realize its interplanetary pitch and had vastly exaggerated the number of people who'd actually applied.

The company had recently whittled down its large application list of would-be Martians to 100 names, with plans to reduce it further before starting full-time training. Although the non-profit arm of the company is alive, it lacks investment to do anything.

The hack is named after the website Skiplagged , an airfare search engine that claims to "expose loopholes to save your money". It is known as skiplagging, whereby a passenger books a flight from A-B-C but only intends to fly A-B.

In the past, critics have openly questioned the project's validity and safety after Mars One stated they would use existing technology for the mission. That means Mars One is at risk of liquidation, after an appeals court in the Swiss canton Basel-Stadt affirmed the firm's bankruptcy status earlier this month.

Mars One CEO Bas Lansdorp says the Dutch non-profit Mars One Foundation is not affected by the bankruptcy proceedings.

Mars One has not responded to a CTVNews.ca request for comment. In addition, it said, the people chosen as finalists to go to Mars were not the most inspiring or capable, but simply the folks who'd given the most money to Mars One. Matter likewise discovered that Mars One's process for choosing these candidates was questionable.
