Bas Lansdorp

Bas Lansdorp is a born entrepreneur with a passion for ambitious projects. He is co-founder and CEO of Mars One, the Dutch foundation that aims to land the first humans on Mars in 2027. Lansdorp sold part of his shares in his former company to finance the start of Mars One. Now, only four years later, Mars One is one of the established names in the world of space exploration. Mars One aims to send its first unmanned demonstration mission to Mars in 2020 and recently announced a contract with aerospace titan Lockheed Martin for this mission. One of the reasons for the success of Mars One is Lansdorp’s enthusiasm, which he transfers to any audience in a contagious way.
