The Martian Federation Society
Copyright 2017 by Raul E, Lopez, MD
Introduction
OUR PLAN
Our long term plan is to colonize and settle Mars, its moons, Mars orbit and the asteroids. However, we believe that the first step is to land exploratory scientific spacecraft on the moons of Mars and return samples back to Earth orbit. From a cost and energy point of view these are the most accessible objects in the solar system, even more accessible than our own moon. No one has yet placed a lander on these objects so they are worthy goals for exploration. Our landers would have plaques claiming the moons of Mars for the Martian Federation Society and the landers would begin the task of exploring the moons in preparation for resource utilization and settlement. We would sell the sample to universities and laboratories across the Earth in order to recover some, if not all, of the costs of the first mission. We are looking for crowd funding and promise to distribute any profits generated by success long term success in an equitable manner to our members. We estimate that sending landers to both moons of Mars should cost about $100 million USD. That is $20 per year from one million persons over five years. Be part of this exciting future and take a chance to make a significant profit!

OUR COMMITMENT
The goal of the Martian Federation Society is to establish a viable human colony on or near Mars. In order to fund the establishment of this colony we will accept private donations. In exchange we will offer membership in the society and the commitment that any future revenues will be distributed proportional to an established formula based on the amount of donations and date of donations.

OUR HISTORY
The Martian Federation was one of the first web sites on the internet promoting the colonization of mars using private funds. The brain child of Raúl E. López, MD (ophthalmologist) it first came on line November 14, 2001. After getting tens of thousands of hits over many years it became less active as Dr. López pursued other life goals. However, as the world population grows and economies become more globally connected the need for a new frontier and a new beginning are greater and more urgent than ever. We are now in the process of revamping the site with the goal of establishing a viable organization based on a similar but updated business model to try to start the first permanent settlement in space in the next 20 years. Come join us in this great adventure!
