Mars One. Because the next giant leap for mankind.


developerWorks’ Todd “Turbo” Watson & Scott Laningham talk about the Mars One presentation at SXSW Interactive 2016. Mars One is an independent project pursuing the other-worldly goal of establishing a permanent human settlement on Mars in the next 12-15 years. Co-founded by entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp and physicist Arno Wielders, both from the Netherlands, Mars One is predicated on the idea that the technology to land human explorers on Mars exists now or will exist entirely within less than a decade and that the cost is significantly reduced and achievable with the idea of permanent settlement of the initial astronauts.

Todd attended the presentation at SXSW 2016 and recounts it to Scott, who sits in so Todd has someone to talk to.
