It’s entirely unclear who this investor is and what their motives are, whether they’re looking to continue Mars One’s work in full, restart the company, acquire its assets for a different project, or something else entirely. The company’s official line is that after clearing its debts, "Mars One will redirect its focus. For the execution of the actual voyage to Mars, the company will continue to seek strategic collaboration with renowned companies and organizations involved with the travel to Mars. 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.” Whatever that means. We’ll know more after a press conference on March 6.
