A year ago, we launched Blueprint Labs. The mission started with a focus on internal product ideation, innovation, and incubation. Today, we are excited to announce the expansion of Blueprint Labs to Mars.
The opening of an experimental facility on Mars, nicknamed Mars BP One, is aligned with an orbital launch scheduled for 2020. This endeavor originally began with experimental work we conducted for the oil and gas industry, and will be applied for the potential discovery of water in the Gale Crater. The application of our Data Platform and IoT solutions will help accelerate the colonization efforts, assisting the ComSat mission in 2024, and later, the cargo missions in 2029.
Starting today on April 1, we will be devoting 50% of our experimental efforts towards our galactic mission. Stay tuned!
