Mars One is a not-for-profit foundation that will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Human settlement on Mars is possible today with existing technologies. Mars One mission plan integrates components that are well tested and readily available from industry leaders worldwide. The first footprint on Mars and lives of the crew thereon will captivate and inspire generations; it is this public interest that will help finance this human mission to Mars.
We are working with Mars One to provide a pleasant experience for potential Jewish pioneers who may not have the highest level of observance. Should something God-forbid happen to a Jewish passenger, it is crucial that a Schliach be present to wrap Tefillin on him and/or preside over life cycle rituals.
