New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2014 -- Rob Buccheri, aka Bobby Mars, is currently a resident of West Hempstead, N.Y., a town of about 19,000 on eastern Long Island. If everything goes according to plan, in 10 years he’ll be living in a small settlement on Mars.
Bobby Mars (Buccheri) is currently one of only 663 remaining Mars One Round 2 candidates and the founder of Mars One Club http://www.marsoneclub.com/, a social network community promoting the Mars settlement project.
“I intend to support Mars One whether they select me for their mission or not,” said Mars. “We are going! I believe the Mars One Project is a juggernaut that cannot be stopped. Mars is my passion, my dream, and our future."
“I want people to know about the Mars One mission, and to support it. At Mars One Club, we are building an extensive social network of people who are very interested in this mission.”
The new website includes a social network community, a forum, a news section, information and videos about Mars One, the planet Mars and Space Travel. Membership in the club is FREE. Just "Register" at www.marsoneclub.com or you can log in with Facebook.
“At Mars One Club, we are here to expand public interest in the exploration and colonization of the Red Planet,” said Mars. “It’s the next giant leap for humankind.”
Mars firmly believes that what makes this venture possible is that it will be a one-way trip. “Absence of a return mission reduces the infrastructure radically,” explained Mars. “Return vehicles that can take off from Mars are currently unavailable. Untested technologies and such mission designs incur far greater costs.”
- 2018 - A launch will include a robotic lander and a communications satellite.
- 2025 - The first crew of four will land on Mars.
- Another crew of four will land every 2 years for the following 10 years.
“This is not going to be an exploratory trip,” Mars said. “It’s a permanent settlement. There has been tremendous interest from many people around the world and we have the ability to make this happen.”
