Colonising Mars


Human Settlement on Mars in 2023 –
Mars One is a not-for-profit organization that will take humanity to Mars in 2023, to establish the foundation of a permanent settlement from which we will prosper, learn, and grow. Before the first crew lands, Mars One will have established a habitable, sustainable settlement designed to receive astronauts every two years. To accomplish this, Mars One has developed a precise, realistic plan based entirely upon existing technologies. It is both economically and logistically feasible, in motion through the integration of existing suppliers and experts in space exploration. Go to story

Send the convicted criminals… send the bankers… send Goldman Sachs… send congress.
No easy journey

One-way ride to Mars fraught with uncertainties
Ten years before, in my Easy Journey to Other Planet, I have written that “This moon-going attempt is childish and waste of time.” And still we are challenging that “Mars-going, so-called, it will also fail.” more

excerpt from Morning Walk, Los Angeles, December 8, 1973:

SVARUP DAMODAR: They have a bigger plan.

[Bengali] Betagor… There is a story that there was river. You know, horse can swim over. So big, big stalwart horses, they waved, mean, they washed away by the flood. So one lean and thin horse is coming, “Can you tell me how much water is there?” It is like bara bara goragere rasatala, beta gora katha jala. [Bengali] So these rascals could not reach even the moon planet; now they are planning to the Mars planet. Just see. And another rascal will believe him. That, What you have done for the… which is the nearest planet?

KARANDHAR: Well, they say they’ve done everything they wanted to do with the moon. They say they’ve accomplished everything they wanted to on the moon.

PRABHUPADA: So you are not successful. That’s a fact.

KARANDHAR: Basically what they did is they went there and they realized it’s not worth anything, so there’s no use going there.

PRABHUPADA: That means you bluff again, and you take some money. That’s your business.

PRAJAPATI: The public interest is flagging, and they’re not interested in the moon anymore. They want something more exciting. So to get the…

PRABHUPADA: Yes. So that is bluffing. That is bluffing. The scientists want to be engaged and get money from the government, so they must go on bluffing. Otherwise how they’ll get money?
