Cancel your plans as company promising trips to Mars goes bankrupt

Mars One’s ill-fated dream unsurprisingly ends in bankruptcy

The financial bankruptcy of the department of Mars One Ventures, a company based in Switzerland, has thus deprived the program of the main source of funding - income from television broadcasting rights.

In 2016, Mars One Ventures was procured by the Swiss organization InFin Innovative Finance, however, its site does not give off an impression of being active any longer. Then, it was reported that Ukrainian was selected in the Mars One project.

"Mars One itself will focus on the even more inspiring "being there", the adventurous story of humans actually living on Mars, making The Red Planet their new home", the company continues.

Morgan Stanley makes biggest buy since financial crisis
US bank Morgan Stanley has signed a deal to buy Calgary-based Solium Capital Inc .in a cash deal valued at about $1.1 billion. This combination will create a leading provider of stock plan administration services and Workplace Wealth.

The company planned to document every step of the journey to Mars, including the selection of astronauts and their training. But the vexing question is, just why in the hell would anybody want to salvage Mars One? A portion of the press release explains what the company has been doing lately, which has very little to do with traveling to Mars: During the last few months, discussions have been held with a new investment company. Also, in 2014, two graduate students from MIT created a report looking at the feasibility of the Mars One mission, claiming that the technology was simply not mature enough for the plan to work and that it would require far more cash and deliveries of extra parts than the mission claimed. "A colony that surely will require great sociability, shared good feelings and cooperation to succeed?"

"The thought of being afraid or having the fear of the fact that I'm going to die on a different planet doesn't really bother me", she said, "because this is something that will help out humanity for years and years to come". The news was confirmed by the company's founder, Bas Lansdorp, to Engadget.

A company that promised to send people to live on planet Mars called Mars One Ventures is bankrupt, according to liquidation listing first seen by a Reddit user on r/space.
