KUSA - Lockheed Martin is collaborating with a foundation that has an ambitious goal to get humans to Mars.
Mars One is a Dutch foundation trying to establish a privately-funded colony on the planet by 2025.
The first part of the project is to develop a robotic mission which will scout the martian surface to help establish a suitable colony.
Human flights will be the next step.
It will be the first privately-funded Mars exploration mission.
A lot of the production for this project will take place in Colorado.
