QUESTION: When will humans live on another planet?
Answer: If all goes to plan – about ten years! The reality is drawing near with the creation of Mars One – a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands that will build a permanent human settlement on the surface of Mars. The first manned mission is scheduled to depart in 2024, with crews of four departing every two years for the Red Planet. An unmanned mission is slated for launch in 2018 to begin preparations for the coming crews. Mars One began selecting astronauts for the mission in April 2013, and had over 200,000 applicants!
