OUR MISSION Mission Statement We live in a highly technological age, where dreams are reality, and our reality starts right now. Scientific research has identified a veritable path of to travel to Mars, and we are on board for an unrivalled historical glance at our planets, galaxies and beyond. The MARS 2026 organization is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization, that exists to promote technical research, development and crew assembly for multiple manned missions to Mars. This unprecedented program has been meticulously created by our founder, and carefully developed during the last 15 years. We are poised to commission experts to conduct research, development and promotion of this project, as well as create partnerships among a wide range of consultants in the aerospace and other industries. Our collaborations will include working with aerospace engineers and experts, who are committed to the development and testing of all systems, using all relevant technologies that will help to leave Earth's surface, fly to Mars and land on it successfully. The same principles and theories will apply for an architected and safeguarded return mission, achieved by launching a spacecraft from the surface of Mars, and safely returning it to Earth. Our program is premier in nature and will include prototyping and developing new space vehicles, creating all relevant logistics, and the management of the entire human mission to Mars. Our MARS 2026 program and its architecture are designed from its conceptual stage, through to today, to be very friendly and accessible to anyone interested in participating in this program. Our well-designed program will also include public outreach, working to create a membership for a purpose of astronaut flight crew assembly, training and preparation for manned missions to Mars. In addition to flight training, there are plans to formally collaborate with dozens of experts, from the field of physical and mental health, medicine, biotech, genetics, human biology, AI, machine learning, robotics, rocket science, nutrition, psychology, hydroponics, vertical farming and food production. In this way our project will advance research, scientific study, and promote the benefit of space travel to humankind, and discover new worlds for the advantage of a global community interested in these issues. The ultimate goal for our Mars research and development program, is to send interested participants of our programs, as well as millions of regular people, to the planet of Mars - in an effort to create a permanent human settlement there for the future of all planetary life to flourish beyond our current limitations. We are interested in hearing from anyone who wants to join us in this effort and we are able to explain more about our program if requested. Thank you for considering involvement in this exciting program, and to be ready to capture future life on Mars. Dreams Our ultimate goal is to create a complete "Earth-to-Mars Exploration and Settlement Industry." This industry will create millions of jobs for all the people to last into the next 100 years. This new industry will require manufacturing, engineering, construction and other heavy industrial jobs. The development of this new industry will begin when elsewhere these jobs are vanishing, and never coming back due to outsourcing, robots and automation. Robots and automation cannot even touch this industry, because it requires people with craftsmanship and even artistic soul. Our biggest dream is to establish a city on Mars with thousands of spaceships carrying travelers back and forth from Earth to Mars, just like Greyhound buses travel from city to city in this country. The establishment of this new city will help to propel all of us towards the Asteroid belt, and Jupiter and Saturn moons, like Europa, Titan, Ganymede or Enceladus.
