Mars One - Mars None
« on: February 12, 2019, 02:39:25 PM »

Remember Mars One, the startup that said it was going to fund a crewed mission to Mars by turning the journey into a reality television spectacle? Now the company is bankrupt, according to financial documents published online.

Engadget confirmed the bankruptcy with Mars One Cofounder Bas Lansdorp, who toldthe publication that he was working ďto find a solutionĒ to the companyís financial woes ó but things donít sound hopeful for the would-be Mars colonist startup.

The news was first unveiled on Reddit, where a user posted a link to Swiss financial documentssuggesting that the company was set to be liquidated.

To be technical, Mars One comprised two arms ó the for-profit Mars One Ventures and the non-profit Mars One Foundation ó and itís the for-profit part thatís out of cash, according to the documents. But Lansdorp told Engadget that the non-profit portion of the project wasnít able to act without further funding.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
