Mars One planned to colonize the Red Planet. Now it's bankrupt.

Remember Mars One, the startup that said it was going to fund a crewed mission to Mars by turning the journey into a reality television spectacle? Now the company is bankrupt, according to financial documents published online. Engadget confirmed the bankruptcy with Mars One Cofounder Bas Lansdorp, who told the publication that he was working “to find a solution” to the company’s financial woes — but things don’t sound hopeful for the would-be Mars colonist startup.
