Dutchman Bas Lansdorp has unveiled what he calls "serious plans" to send a mission of four astronauts to live on Mars. According to Lansdorp, the technology exists to realize the plan within a decade, but it will be a one-way ticket to the red planet.
Mr. Lansdorp says the Mars One project would cost approximately six billion US dollars. No taxpayers' money would be involved. The commercial operation would be financed by selling television rights to watch the technical 'Big Brother' reality show.
