Open Mars is going to be an open source platform for crowd-sourcing the exploration of Mars.
In the not too distant future commercialized spaceflight, the internet, and nanotechnology
will allow anyone to explore the solar system from home using remote control micro-robots.
The preliminary goal of the Open Mars Project is to send a pod containing a million Micro-Martians
to the Red Planet by the year 2032. Each Micro-Martian will be a remote control device that
an Earthling will pay to operate.
Cost to control a robot on Mars = $2000
